(Antirrhinum majus)

This oldie bears spikes filled with fragrant two-lipped flowers ranging in color from yellows and whites to purples and pinks. Often grown as an annual, snapdragons prefer cooler growing conditions, where they'll produce an abundance of glossy green leaves and richly shaded or bicolored blossoms from April through the first frost. A. majus's cultivars range from taller plants to fill in mixed borders to intermediate ones for bedding to dwarfs for containers or edging.

Grows 12 to 72 inches tall and 6 to 24 inches wide in USDA Hardiness Zones 9 to 11; full sun.
