Snapdragon Flowers Seeds (Antirrhinum Majus Maximum Snowflake)
Snapdragon (Antirrhinum Majus Maximum Snowflake) - Establish these annuals from Snapdragon seeds, and provide some entertainment for children. Children love the name of these flowers, and they love to see them snap! This particular variety is known for its jaw-like upper and lower petals. A single stem averages 10 - 15 of these unique white blooms. They are grouped so closely together that they give the impression of one single lengthy flower. You can gently squeeze the sides of white Snapdragons and the two jaw-like petals will separate like a mouth opening. Release the bloom and the jaws snap closed! Now you understand how this particular flower received its name.
Antirrhinum Snowflake should be grown in rich, well-drained soil. Adding organic matter is very beneficial to the Snapdragon flowers. Grow them in full sun, and space this tall variety 12 - 18 inches apart. To encourage branching, pinch the tips of young plants. After they are done blooming, trim the plants back, and they will quickly be blooming again. Snapdragons perform best in cooler summer climates. In hot regions, provide Snapdragon plants with some afternoon shade.
Snapdragon plants can tolerate a light frost, so they can be set out as early as the ground can be worked. For the earliest blooms, sow tall white Snapdragon seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before setting the plants out. Use quality starter mix and sow the white Snapdragon flower seed on the surface of the pre-moistened mix and gently press the seed in. Harden off the Snapdragon seedlings for 10 - 14 days before planting outdoors. Pinch back at the time of transplanting to encourage branching. For areas with mild winters, sow Snapdragon flower seeds outdoors in a sheltered seed bed in late summer. Transplant the young Snapdragon plants into their permanent location for blooms in winter and spring.
