Twining Snapdragon mix (Asarina Scandens) 30 seeds (#939)

Proving that everything old is new again, Asirina is making a grand comeback from near obscurity. Trumpet shaped flowers always seem to add an old fashioned charm and Asarina adds delicate vines and leaves to create a totally beguiling vine. It looks almost too fragile to hold on, but have no fear, this vine is a survivor. And its trumpet blooms are hummingbird favorites.
Asarina scandens have actually been reclassified as Maurandya scandens, but gardeners have lost patience with taxonomists and continue to grow them as Asarina.
Growing Regions - Zones 3 to 10. As a perennial in zones 9 and 10.
Flowers - the 3-4 cm flowers are trumpet-shaped with 5 lobes. They droop downward on the vines, giving the effect of flowing. Climbing snapdragon blooms in shades of pink, blue, lavender and white. Repeat blooms May through Fall.
Leaves - bright green pointed heart or arrow head-shaped leaves.
It's great for the cold greenhouse or conservatory, and will often bloom until the end of the year unless there is a hard frost.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
When planting Asarina outdoors it is best to sow the seeds on the surface from late in the winter until the early spring.
If preparing Asarina for later transplanting as seedlings, it is best to sow the seeds indoors in peat pots three to four months before they are due to be transplanted outdoors in the early spring when the temperature will not drop below +5C.
Seedlings should be planted at a spacing of 30 cm into a sunny area of the garden; ideally with fertile soil, that is moist but well drained.
