Snapdragon Night and Day Seeds

Snapdragon Night and Day Seeds

Antirrhinum majus var. nanum

Item #1310

Tender perennial. Night and Day is a robust, long-blooming, and visually striking cousin of the Black Prince snapdragon. It makes an attractive border along a walkway or accent in the flower garden. We also love how it looks next to Bunny Tails Grass in a container. Night and Day's flowers have a spicy scent and are absolutely gorgeous cut flowers! When the weather cools in fall, its dark red petals turn nearly black, and it's foliage turns dark burgundy, enhancing the contrast with its lower white jaws. A short-lived tender perennial that may overwinter in climates as cold as USDA zone 5. Deer Resistant.
