Asarina procumbens
TRAILING SNAPDRAGON
syn. Antirrhinum asarina
Family: Scrophulariaceae
Pronounced: a-sah-ree-na
The spreading arms of this delightful prostrate trailing plant have small soft hairy grey leaves. Large yellow and red blotched, white "snapdragons" are produced for many months throughout the summer. Self-seeds without ever becoming a nuisance.
SOWING ADVICE: SEEDS CAN BE SOWN AT ANY TIME BUT ARE BEST SOWN IN WINTER OR EARLY SPRING TO BENEFIT FROM A COLD SPELL IN THE WET COMPOST TO BREAK THEIR DORMANCY. WE ADVISE COVERING SEEDS VERY THINLY WITH SAND OR FINE GRIT TO ABOUT THE DEPTH OF THE SEED SIZE. IF THE SEEDS DO NOT COME UP WITHIN 6 TO 12 WEEKS THE DAMP SEED TRAY CAN BE GIVEN COLD TREATMENT IN A FRIDGE FOR ABOUT FOUR WEEKS. THEY MAY STILL TAKE VERY MANY MONTHS TO APPEAR, SO PLEASE NEVER DISCARD THE POT OR TRAY.
