Product Details

The sweet, upright flower spikes of Antirrinum ‘Potomac Appleblossom’ are like a vision of candy land, the blossoms in blended shades of sugary white and crystalline pink adding a long-blooming confection to sunny gardens from early summer into fall. Bees and other pollinators seek out the nectar while humans may use the edible flowers to add color to salads, desserts, and drinks. (The floral flavor is a wee bit bitter so use the blossoms sparingly.) In our trials here at the farm, this deer-resistant Snapdragon flowered best in full sun with a long-running show that began in early July and continued into September. Plants grew 2–2½’ tall but they can reach heights of up to 4’. The flower spikes are a terrific addition to bouquets. Deadhead plants occasionally to encourage rebloom.

A genus of about 40 species of which just one is commonly grown - A. majus, the traditional Snapdragon, which is an annual for us. All thrive in full sun and well-drained soil.

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.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Latin Name Pronunciation: an-tihr-rye'num  

Light/Watering: Plant in a location with full sun and well-drained soil. Once established, water only when the weather is dry.

For annual Snapdragons (A. majus), feed them monthly with a bloom-boosting fertilizer (15-30-15). Deadhead them regularly to keep the blooms coming.

Our perennial varieties need a year or two to settle in. Leave plants standing in fall and prune them back to new growth in spring. Drought tolerant.
