When you submit a question, you'll get an answer in your e-mail within 24 hours. Snapdragons enjoy growing in cool weather but can be damaged if frost arrives so covering over them when frost threatens will help protect them. Dewberries are also called black raspberries but the specific plant you're probably looking for is Rubus arizonensis Focke (Arizona dewberry). You may have trouble finding these plants without going to a large nursery that specializes in native plants, fruit trees and fruiting vines. You may have to phone around to see if local nurseries carry these plants. As a rule, you won't need to provide frost protection for dewberries. Best wishes with your garden.
