description for "Snapdragon: Antirrhinum majus 'Chimes™ Red'"

'Chimes™ Red' snapdragon produces fragrant, strong branching, 6-8 inch plants with tightly spaced dark red florets. 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. A great dwarf variety for containers, mixed color bowls or at the front of the border. The 'Chimes' snapdragon series are pretty and petite cool season growers. Outstanding in mass plantings. Teams well with pansies and spring bulbs. Pinch back spent flowers to prolong bloom season and encourage fullness. Nice for Easter and Mother's Day. Snapdragons are self-sowing annual plants. They are cool-season annuals in nearly every available flower color, or bicolor, except blue and green. They bloom in spring and summer in relatively cool weather areas and in winter and spring in warm winter, hot summer areas. With cutting back in the summer many snapdragons will rebloom when cooler fall temperatures arrive. --edited by dtd siegelgirl
