The Q&A Archives: growing snapdragons on my patio

Question: I want to plant snapdragons in pots on my patio. I live in a apartment. The back patio gets lots of sun light and the front patio gets sun for about 2 to 3 hours in the evening. I would like to plant them in the pot on the front patio. What would be the best place to plant them.
Thank you

Answer: Although snapdragons typically grow best in full sunshine, the sun in Tucson is a bit too intense for these plants. They won't grow in the summer months for you, but you should be able to grow them in the fall on your front patio and in the winter and spring on your back patio. Since the plants are in pot, you can simply move them from one side of the building to the other, depending upon the season.
