Gardeners' Notes:

I love snapdragons, but seem to have trouble with them in my garden. They grow fairly well in containers. The soil is clay, but pretty well amended through years of mulching. We run to the acid here in Putnam County, NY (zone 6 in good years). Any suggestions on improving performance in the garden?

Planted these in the fall. They bloomed some during the ravages of winter cold, wind and rain, never bowing to the weather. They were lovely for Christmas. Then in the spring they really took off with magnificent bloom, still standing up to whatever the weather had to offer. Now, almost mid-May, they look like they are finished blooming for the most part so I have cut them back to see if I can extend the bloom season. Grew to 30-36" tall with multiple bloom heads, as well as sideshoots. Highly recommend, especially for larger yards.
