Snapdragons in Bloom

Here is another photo that I took from my garden today. The blooms are just so beautiful. Snapdragons are known to be cold-season annual plants. They do best in full or partial sun as well as in well drained soil. Here in Florida where the heat is a scorcher, this plant is like a baby that I need to water everyday.
Snapdragons are fascinating plants because when you gently squeeze the sides of the intricately shaped flower, you will see the jaws of a dragon head snap closed. The blooms come in gorgeous colors, including some with amazing color variations on each flower. I have red and white in the garden right now. I was reading on how to re-plant it and it's really easy because snapdragons are an outstanding cut flower. Snapdragons are cool-season annual, and a great for fall color. Check out this plant in the garden store in your area.
