Potomac Dark Orange Snapdragon Plants

Named after the lovely old river that flows into the Chesapeake Bay, these lovers of long days are candy-like burnt orange and dark pink spikes of ruffled beauty.

Snapdragons, old fashioned beacons of the cottage garden, are re-fashioned with subtle hues, pleasing scents, and intricate blossoms.

Includes three young plants, grown in 2.5” diameter pots.

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
Where to Plant Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, with well-draining soil
When to Plant Plant outside in the late spring, once the soil has warmed up. Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon
When to Expect Blooms Blooms in the spring and again in the fall, additionally will bloom through milkd summers
Care Instructions Water regularly and cut back blooms to encourage more
Extra Credit If your summers are hot, they may stop blooming in July and August, but will begin again in the fall. Cut stems for vases when the bottom buds open
