Short description

Antirrhinum is a genus of plants commonly known as dragon flowers or snapdragons because of the flowers' fancied resemblance to the face of a dragon that opens and closes its mouth when laterally squeezed. They are native to rocky areas of Europe, the United States, and North Africa.

Light

Your snapdragons will bloom most profusely in full sun to partial shade in the spring. Once the temperature heats up, they may stop blooming altogether. Planting them in partial shade and keeping them well watered will help them make it through the summer and likely bloom again in fall. However, they are quick to get established and it can be just as easy to replace your snapdragon plants each season.

Soil

Snapdragons like a neutral soil pH between 6.2 and 7.0. As short-lived plants, they are not heavy feeders, but adding organic matter will help keep them healthy and blooming.

Water

Snapdragons need adequate watering. When growing snapdragon, keep moist for the first few weeks. Once established, snapdragon will need approximately an inch of water per week in times of no rainfall. Water near the crown of the plant and avoid overhead watering to keep your snapdragon healthy. Once established, let the soil dry about an inch deep before watering.

Temperature and Humidity

Snapdragons prefer cooler temperatures. Snapdragons grow best when nighttime temperatures are in the low 40s and daytime temperatures in the low 70s Fahrenheit. Once established in the bed and hardened off, they can withstand sub-freezing temperatures. Make sure they stay well-watered during cold spells and add a layer of pine straw mulch, and they can last for quite some time. If you should get record low temperatures, cover snapdragons with pine straw for a few days until the chill has passed. Seedlings grown indoors do need to be hardened off for about 10 days to two weeks before planting in the garden.
