These Snapdragons were flowering in Cats Garden still in October. I love the smell of these flowers like toy Candy sticks. A sweet smell I forever associate with growing up. I used to buy (and still do) the Candy sticks in rectangular boxes. These days these are decorated with super heros or tom and jerry.
Here is a flower with longevity from summer to autumn and beyond. I had Snapdragons last year that survived winter. Although they are listed as an annual. The only thing they do not like is being transplanted. Once they are in the ground thats where they should stay.
These are on my wishlist for a border plant. They can be bought dwarf, or normal height, and in a mixture of colours. They are also easy to raise from seed. Nurserys normally stock these as a summer bedding plant.
I must buy some Seeds to start some new plants off for next year.
