I love this plant. Beautiful color combo pink/peach/yellow. I got only 1 about 3-4 years ago from High Country Gardens. It's gone from one main stem to six, one of which is now 43" high --either from the dry weather we've been having or that handful of compost I put around it in the spring (sandy soil here) -- In previous years it's been about 18" high. Deer sampled it the first year; I spray it w/ Liquid Fence just to be sure.

I love snapdragons so I was excited to find a perennial variety. The first year it did very good. It stayed evergreen until the next spring and it bloomed non-stop until frost. It must of bloomed itself to death though because it died over the winter. It was great while it lasted.
