It is certainly the "Queen" of Antirrhinums, strong and sturdy plants with good branching habit, the blooms remain on plant for a very long period compared to other Antirrhinums.. vibrant colors.. if you like Antirrhinums, you will surely love this variety...

I live in zone 5 I tried sowing half my pack indoors not a lot of success, so I put the rest of the pack straight outdoors. Success, it keeps blooming and blooming. One lived through the winter! The other did not perhaps due to the wind? Will sow more this spring if I can find some and maybe mulch in the late fall. I'll see if that helps.
I have not tried to seed due to most comments stating that they don't seed. That I think is the only drawback to this beautiful flower. Does anyone know for sure? I soooooo love this snap. It is so beautiful, repeat bloomer, and hardy. It is a must have.

This must be the best Snap around. Beautiful Double flowers, look like they should be eaten! It will have a place in my garden for years to come! I have only seen this variety at one nursery as a plant. Best to buy seed.
