NC State Extension

Antirrhinum ‘Animation Yellow’

Trial: Annual

Years Trialed: 1997

Good Qualities:

Great yellow color (2); No problems (2); This seemed to be the strongest of the snaps in the trials; Excellent stem life as a fresh cut, vibrant color; Easy to germinate; Transplanted well; Blooms fast.

Problems:

Needs support

Comments:

It was a nice snap, but the price of cut field snaps is the biggest problem. It’s hard to get excited about a plant that has such a low value; It’s similar to other snaps at least when grown in the field; In a year of snapdragon failure for me, this one was the only one to germinate and flower.
