Comments: Full sun ideal. Tolerates part sun, especially in warm climates. Likes rich, moist, well-drained soils. Cut plants back after bloom, they will quickly bloom again. Flowers excellent for cutting, sometimes sweetly scented, available in traditional "snapping" flowers, or open mouth "butterfly" or "azalea" flowers. Hummingbirds love snapdragons, and the butterfly-types (Madame Butterfly and Twinny) are easiest for them to feed on. Cold tolerant to about 18° F., Snapdragons are cool weather plants, often grown with and like pansies, completing their bloom cycle when temperatures consistently top 80° F. Deer and rabbit resistant.
