Organic Night & Dawn Snapdragon
2 to 3′ tall | 70 days to harvest | Antirrhinum majus
Did you know snapdragons are edible? Toss them in salads and enjoy every bite! We love this stately, gracious Night & Dawn snapdragon for her contrasting raspberry-cream petals with vivid golden throats, practically begging you to open them as you did when you were five. Our friend and mentor Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seed in Oregon selected this beauty out of Night & Day snapdragon and, as usual, Frank open our minds and the possibilities of this world in more ways than we’ll ever know.
Snapdragons thrive in gardens and raised beds as well as containers, abundant for cutting & munching mid-July through frost.
At Fruition, we sow most organic snapdragon seeds in soil blocks indoors 4 weeks before final frost to transplant after final frost with one foot between plants.
