I never thought of snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus
) as a wildflower, but they are native in France. Surely familiar to every gardener, this annual to perennial (depending on climate) has sweet-scented tubular 'snap' blossoms of rosy red for most of the summer. Wonderful for cutting.
Press the fine seed into well-drained soil in a sunny spot from spring through early fall.
I've searched for a year to find the right source of French native wildflower seeds to offer you. Here they are! Certified organically grown, these seeds are produced on a family flower farm in the Massif Central
. One hundred percent of the process is artisanal, right down to the seed packets which are decorated with drawings of the content plants by the owner.
