Series Notes - Rocket™
The unrivalled king of the Tall Snaps, Rocket boasts big, densely-packed plumes atop vigorous 2 1/2- to 3-foot plants, glowing with dark red flowers in cool, sunny weather! The more you cut, the more you get with this very floriferous performer, and the flowers emit a rich, spicy scent you will love in the garden or the vase!
This tall variety is best in the back of the border, the bed, or the cutting garden. It combines well with other spring and fall annuals, adding plenty of vertical color. The blooms open from the bottom up on these long spikes, so the lower blooms are in full flower when the tip of the spike is still tighlty budded. A beloved favorite of gardeners across the country for its spectacular color and robust garden performance, Rocket is the Snap you want for dramatic blooms and plenty of them!
If you have never "snapped" a Snapdragon, here is how to do it: You'll notice that the blooms form two separate cupped clusters that meet in the middle, like jaws. Gently squeeze the sides of the jaws, and the two clusters will separate, just like a mouth opening. The space is just the right size for a child's finger to poke into the dragon's mouth. Release the bloom and the jaws "snap" closed!
