Red Snapdragon

Montego Red Snapdragons have dark red petals with some yellow at the opening of the throat on dark green foliage. Montego Snapdragons are a dwarf variety originating in southwestern Europe and the Mediterranean.  They look great when planted as a border.  They bloom earlier than some other varieties but will stop blooming when the weather gets hot.  When it cools off again they resume blooming.

Snapdragons come in various sizes ranging from dwarf varieties to varieties that can reach a height of four feet. Rows of perfectly formed, beautifully painted flowers adorn many stems.  These lightly scented flowers will attract hummingbirds and butterflies but deer will stay away.

When the blooms are squeezed, they “snap”, which is how they got their name.  Kids love to “snap” these unique flowers, so encourage them to help plant some in the garden.  Maybe it will spark their love of gardening.
