With stems full of blossoms, snapdragons are a favorite among gardeners and floral designers alike. Snapdragons are so named due to their resemblance to a dragon’s head with a jaw that opens and closes when squeezed from the sides. Grown as an annual in temperate climates, they can be a perennial in milder climates.
Snapdragons are popular in cutting gardens (gardens planted with the purpose of providing material for flower arrangements) and have a long-lasting vase life. Their flower spikes are perfect for adding some height and lines to fresh bouquets. Snapdragons are thirsty as a cut flower, so be sure to watch the water level in arrangements. They come in many colors including white, yellow, orange, pink, lavender, purple and burgundy.
A bunch of snapdragons placed in a vase, pitcher or mason jar make a perfect bright spot in any room. Snapdragons also make great companion flowers in mixed bouquets like the pink ones in our Enchantment bouquet.
With snapdragons being our Pick of the Month in May, stop into any of our Gainan’s locations and pick up a bunch or two and create your own bright spot.
