description for "Snapdragon: Antirrhinum majus 'Opus III™ Appleblossom'"

'Opus III™ Appleblossom' snapdragon produces fragrant blooms of silvery pink and white, with salmony red throats, on upright plants. The 'Opus' snapdragon series are great cut flowers and long day bloomers in areas with cool summers. 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 spring or 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.
