Wednesday’s Flowers – Summer Snapdragons

August 24, 2011

Nothing says summer like cheerful snapdragons and seeing that summer is coming to a close I wanted to highlight these beauties!  Snapdragons come in a wide range of colours; various shades of pink and purple, bright yellow and pure white.  I picked up bunch of soft pink snapdragons at the local grocery store for $7.99; that’s right I’m back to buying flowers.  Which means I really need to get a garden planted for next year.

I placed 6 stems of these beauties in a clear vase with a metal grid and used white cedar to give the arrangement volume and depth.

I love seeing snapdragons tucked into planters with other flowering plants; the large blooms give a great show and stand out amongst other flowers.  They also look stunning in bridal bouquets and centrepieces.  Next spring I will be planting lots of these in planters to enjoy all summer!  But first I will enjoy what is left of this summer while planning our garden at the new house!

Enjoy!

  • Best thing is that they are available year round, at least in warmer climates they grow year round!
