Beard-tongues are the showiest varieties by far, putting on a terrific display of colour, this selection blooming from spring through fall. Plants form a bushy compact clump, bearing several spikes of unique and showy, large, bright pink flowers that feature a contrasting white throat. Unfortunately, these are not reliably hardy and should be mulched even in mild winter areas, or treated as bedding annuals. In the deep south, plant in part shade. Excellent in pots and tubs as well as directly in the garden. Nice for cutting. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. Also known as ‘Summer Snapdragon’.
