Snapdragons have got to be one of the easiest Anuals to grow in Columbus, Ohio (zone 5b-6a) area. Can usually be found in the Nurseries in very early spring while their is still a nip in the air. I find that they prefer it on the dry side so do not overwater them. And will easlily produce tons of seeds. They flower here from spring all the way to fall.
