description for "Snapdragon: Antirrhinum majus 'Liberty Classic™ Crimson'"

'Liberty Classicâ„¢ Crimson' snapdragon produces fragrant blooms of velvety crimson-red on upright plants that reach 24 to 30 inches tall. The 'Liberty Classic' snapdragon series produces pretty and petite sturdy flower spikes with uniform habit that bloom in the cool season. Valued for their long-blooming and profuse display of stunning flowers from pastels to dark shades. Flowers are densely packed along stalks, and are about 1-inch wide, with a distinctive lipped shape. Colorful spikes or snaps are popular for adding informal charm to flower beds and indoor bouquets. Start seed indoors 6 to 8 weeks before planting outside or sow directly outside after danger of frost is past. Plants grow as one or several tall stalks covered with bright flowers. Outstanding in mass plantings or borders. Teams well with pansies and spring bulbs. Snapdragons are a particular favorite of children who like to pinch the tiny individual blossoms and make the "dragon mouth" open and close. Pinch back spent flowers to prolong bloom season and encourage fullness. Hardy in zones 6-10; otherwise grown as an annual. --edited by dtd siegelgirl

History:

No matter where you live in the country, there is a season when snapdragons will absolutely steal the show in your landscape. In zones 7 and warmer, many gardeners plant them in the fall as pansy partners. They are planted in late winter to early spring in colder areas where they give riotous colors almost all summer. The snapdragon is native to Europe and the Mediterranean.
