A hardy plant, these yellow flowered plants prefer light shade and when cared for properly, will multiple each year, adding color after color to your landscape.



3. SNAPDRAGON
Bring a pop of color to your outdoor space or sunroom with bright snapdragons. Available in multiple sizes and varieties, snapdragons are outstanding flowers for any cut or potted arrangement. Appreciating cool moist weather, snapdragons come in an array of white, yellow, pink, red, orange, pink and purple colors.
