Snapdragon Vine

12 May

Snapdragon Vine (Asarina), evergreen, small vine, spreads to 10 feet, fast growing, blooms spring to fall purple, pink, white and other colors, average summer water, sun to light shade, good container plant.

Climbing, sprawling, or trailing tender perennials have twining stems and triangular to ovate leaves. Tubular flowers, borne singly in leaf axils, flare at the mouth like snapdragon (Antirrhinum, a close relative). Often grown as an annual; plants from early sowings will bloom in late spring and through the summer. Grow on a trellis, in window boxes or hanging baskets, or as ground cover. Need good drainage.
