Description / 'Black Prince' Snapdragon Seeds

This dragon looks like it might really snap. A wonderful heirloom reselected for modern vigor and bloom power, 'Black Prince' Snapdragon is a glorious snapdragon with blooms of darkest crimson and bronzy foliage that complements the fresh greens of the spring or fall garden beautifully.

The blooms arise on long, dense stalks, faintly redolent of cinnamon and so showy. 'Black Prince' Snapdragon plants reach 18 inches tall and about 12 inches wide in the garden—a great size for the bed, border, or even edging.

If you have never "snapped" a snapdragon, here is how to do it: You'll notice that the blooms form two separate cupped clusters that meet in the middle, like jaws. Gently squeeze the sides of the jaws, and the two clusters will separate, just like a mouth opening. The space is just the right size for a child's finger to poke into the dragon's mouth. Release the bloom and the jaws "snap" closed.

'Black Prince' Snapdragon Seeds may be direct sown or started indoors for earlier blooms. Snaps are cool-season annuals that bloom in spring and fall in warm areas, summer in colder climates. In very warm locations they may winter over if mulched. They do best in full sun to light shade.
