Snapdragon, antirrhinum is a very attractive perennial but a tender one; the colours are soft and of a good variety; the foliage a dark green and of extremely graceful habit. It will blossom the first year if sown early; but the best way is to sow it in July and winter the plants in the cold frame for they will not live in the open ground. They should be sown every year. If this plant is given good care and well fertilized the flower stalks and flowers will grow to an enormous size. It is very effective to cut as the graceful stalks droop over prettily in a vase or bowl. New York florists recognize its decorative qualities and force it for early Spring sale.
