NC State Extension

Antirrhinum ‘Animation Deep Rose’

Trial: Annual

Years Trialed: 1997

Good Qualities:

Early blooming snapdragon..good for fresh market; Great cutting snap with few disease problems. I never had any problems and I usually do; Excellent fresh cut, long vase life; This snap flowered earlier than my Rockets planted at the same time. Color is deeper than Rocket Rose. Blooms all summer!


Not really a rose color…more like a pink with yellow throat; Not hardy as a field frown cut in this climate.


Similar to Rocket Rose; Great cut and fine rebloomer; Most of these cultivars did well, but this could be due to the amount of heat we had this growing season, our normal seasons would not produce such prolific growth.
