This vivid perennial Snapdragon turned up as a lone plant in a batch of A. braun-blanquetii, but obviously doesn't look the part. After scratching our heads for a minute, we followed our instincts and began propagating it like mad. Now our good fortune can be yours. The lightly fragrant, bright pink flowers, brushed orange and yellow, keep coming all summer, and the plant comes back year after year. Hard to beat. Exclusive.
A genus of about 40 species of which just one is commonly grown -- A. majus, the traditional Snapdragon, which is an annual for us. We were surprised to learn that other species, almost unknown in this country, not only are hardy but are also superb subjects for the garden. All thrive in full sun and well-drained soil.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.
