I planted 12 of these last Spring (Zone 6b) and they performed great throughout the summer until they got slaughtered by rabbits or deer! The colors were great and the flowers stood up to all kinds of weather, they are self cleaning so no need to deadhead. They were beautiful and one of my favorites until the slaughter. . . definitely have a plan for that if you choose to grow them. They did come back though in the fall (it took them a long time to regrow from being eaten to the ground). Once they finally recovered they still had time to re-bloom, well past our first frost! I think our 2nd or 3rd hard freeze is what finally did them in. I will definitely plant again.

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.
