The Q&A Archives: Desert Snapdragons

Question: I am frustrated in my hunt for desert snapdragons. I had these in my yard years ago and loved them. Seems I can't get these from Home Depot??? Thought they were hybrids produced here in Arizona - where can I get some to plant now?
Thank so much,

Answer: I am only familiar with the Golden Desert-Snapdragon (Mohavea breviflora) which is native to our area. As a native plant, it is not readily available in most retail outlets but I'm sure you can purchase a plant or two from the Desert Botanical Garden plant shop or from the Boyce Arboretum plant sale.
