How to grow Twinny Peach snapdragon: Start from seed indoors roughly four to six weeks before the expected last frost. Plant snapdragons in full sun and well-drained soil. Provide supplemental water during dry spells. In hot, humid areas, snapdragons are best treated as cool-season annuals to grow in spring and fall. Fall-planted snaps may survive the winter in USDA Zone 7 and warmer, and resuming growth and flowering in early spring. Twinny Peach snapdragon’s small size makes it perfect for the front of a border or use in window boxes and other containers. Typically treated as an annual.
