Answer: I, too, love snapdragons and wish they would bloom all summer, but they grow and flower best in the cooler spring and fall months. You can usually get a second flush of blooms in the late spring and late fall by cutting off the spent flower stalks before they completely go to seed. Because snapdragons are annuals, their whole purpose in life is to flower and set seeds. Once they do that, they will die. Cutting the stalks off the plant will encourage the plant to send up a new (but smaller) flower stalk. Of course, when hot weather arrives, the plants will die down and will need to be replaced in the cooler months of fall and again in the early spring. But in the meantime, you can enjoy a second flush of blooms from each plant. Best wishes with your snapdragons!
