Snapdragon Secrets

May 8, 2007

Previously, I thought snapdragons were treated as annuals here. They performed well in the cool weather of spring and died off when the summer got hot and humid. I noticed that mine, kept deadheaded, did not die. Instead they just went dormant and perked up in the fall.

Last fall I took cuttings, just to see if they would root. They rooted easily.
