Apple Blossom Snapdragon Seeds (Antirrhinum Majus Maximum Appleblossom), Non Gmo, Open Pollinated. 
Minimum 30 Seeds per package. 

These tall Snapdragons are a gardener's favorite choice for a long lasting cut flower.  Easy-to-grow from seeds, this variety reaches approximately 36 inches in height and is a large-flowered form of the common garden variety.  It is usually grown as an annual, but it may winter over in areas with mild winter weather.  The tall plants produce densely packed spikes that bloom in succession. 

Snapdragons are suitable as bedding plants, and they are very impressive when they are planted in mass groupings. Snapdragons attract pollinators including hummingbirds, bumble bees and other large bees. Some folks say the fragrance is like sweet bubblegum, I think they smell wonderful. 

The Snapdragon Flowers should be grown in rich, well-drained soil. Adding organic matter is very beneficial to the plants. Grow them in full sun, and space this tall variety 12 - 18 inches apart. To encourage branching, pinch the tips of young plants. Snapdragon care includes trimming the plants back after they have finished blooming to encourage a second flush of blooms. They perform best in cooler summer climates. In hot regions, provide the plants with some afternoon shade. 

How to grow Snapdragons from seeds: The 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 Snapdragon seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before setting the plants out. Use quality starter mix and sow the flower seeds on the surface of the pre-moistened mix and gently press the seed in. Harden off the seedlings for 10 - 14 days before planting outdoors. Pinch back at the time of transplanting to encourage branching. For areas with mild winters, sow the flower seeds outdoors in a sheltered seed bed in late summer.
