Snapdragons in Texas:  Heat Hardy and Thriving

Another great addition to the Texas garden are the new heat hardy snap dragons.  These began blooming in mid-March and have a full month of bloom left!  They come in multiple colors and expand each year.   They really come after the tulips and daffodils and are great to follow them.

Snap dragons begin blooming significantly before the Iris and azaleas.  Grow these with cushion mums for fall color and bright spring green foliage!
