Up close, the flowers resemble a dragon head, ready to snap at any moment. In the garden these billowy, elegant flowers are a beautiful sight to behold, and the tall, lofty stems make them ideal for cutting. The seed pods are surprisingly interesting, too - they resemble little skulls. Snapdragons are a late blooming annual, bringing fresh, beautiful color to the late summer and early fall garden. They make an elegant cut flower, the tall spires complementary of many flowers.
