description for "Snapdragon: Antirrhinum majus 'Bells™ Purple & White'"

'Bells™ Purple & White' snapdragon produces fragrant hyacinth-like, or open-faced, magenta purple blooms with a white throat. The short, stocky and compact plants are long flowering and excellent for beds, borders and containers. They prefer a sunny position in any garden soil. Well drained soil is best. The 'Bells' snapdragon series features open "butterfly" flowers that grow on strong, basal-branching plants. Outstanding in mass plantings. Teams well with pansies and spring bulbs. Pinch back spent flowers to prolong bloom season and encourage fullness. Snapdragons are self-sowing annual plants. They are cool-season annuals that bloom all spring through early summer in nearly every available flower color, or bicolor, except blue and green. With cutting back in the summer many snapdragons will rebloom when cooler fall temperatures arrive. The foliage is attractive with narrow, dark-green leaves. Hardy in zones 6-10; otherwise grown as an annual. --edited by dtd siegelgirl
