Perennial (Grown as an annual). If you love "snaps" you'll want to grow this dwarf variety of the old garden favorite. With a lovely combination of colors, it adds charm when planted with other low-growing annuals in flower beds and borders. The perfect size for containers, or even hanging baskets to attract pollinators. A perennial in USDA zones 5 and warmer, usually grown as an annual; snaps do best in cool weather. A good cut flower for your petite bouquet. Deer resistant.
