Lofty, long-lasting and RUST RESISTANT vertical appeal for any garden bed or bouquet! The ruffled, luxurious amethyst-colored “butterfly” blooms on this Snapdragon open expansively, clustered atop exceptionally sturdy 3’ stems, attracting hummingbirds, bees and butterflies in droves. The abundant, delicately-scented, royal purple blooms last from Spring through first frost - after the first floral extravaganza, cut back to about 8” for an impressive encore performance! You’ll get the best results with regular water, rich soil and not TOO much Summer heat. In Mediterranean climates like ours in the Bay Area, this annual performs a lot more like a short-lived perennial.
