Lesser Snapdragon -misopates orontium– is a small annual that traditionally grew on arable farmland and open waste ground. In recent years however, it has sadly declined due to the use of modern herbicides. Fortunately it can be grown successfully in gardens where plants are best introduced into sunny areas on light soils. Lesser Snapdragon is a low growing species with pretty pink flowers that appear from July to September. It looks best growing with other low growing cornfield annuals such as Wild Pansy, Field Pansy, Scarlet Pimpernel, Field forget-me not, Corn Buttercup, Pheasant`s eye and Wild Candytuft. Alternative Names for Lesser Snapdragon include Calf’s and Weasel’s Snout.

How to grow Lesser Snapdragon Seeds
Lesser Snapdragon seeds should be sown in spring outside, where they are to flower, and covered lightly with soil.
