Snapdragon, Defiant Mix (Organic)

Antirrhinum majus. 70-80 days.

Snapdragons are one of the classic annual flowers that every gardener should experiment with. These 3′ tall plants are a bright accent in the garden and also make excellent cut flowers. Flower color mostly ranges from dark-cherry red to peach-orange red, defiantly throwing out the occasional bright yellow plant. This mix will not settle for the authority of uniformity. We think of it as a beautiful mix of reds with the possibility of surprises. One of the coolest things about snapdragons is that the seed pods look like little upside-down skulls when seed is ripe. Blooms from July through September and is deer resistant.

    Great Snapdragon for cut flowers

    Where did you grow this variety? Washington

    I love the deep magenta snapdragons in this mix. The other colors are nice, too and compliment well with each other. I am wondering why you report that all parts of this plant are poisonous? Snapdragons are listed as edible flowers on many seed sites. They might not taste great but are generally not considered poisonous?

      Andrea, Thanks for the helpful review. I realize that we mistakenly listed snapdragons as toxic. I have fixed variety descriptions. Thanks again for your help!
