Aren't snapdragons annuals?



I planted three or fours snapdragons last year in the front flowerbed. Well, I noticed somethign growing last week that wasn't one of the petunias that I put out, but it didn't look like one of our usual weeds either. Sunday I saw a bloom on one of them. They're snapdragons. And they are coming up all over my bed. I didn't think they'd come back. And I have colors coming up that I didn't plant.

I also planted some ****'s comb things that died right away last year (or maybe the year before), and those appear to be coming up this year, too.



Does anybody find this weird? Or does this often happen?

Nope snap dragons are pre-annuals! (however you spell it.)

I love those.

The website I found said they were annuals, but things can come back from seeding itself. If they're not where you planted them and they're in different colors, that's what it sounds like to me. They got cross-pollinated and made seeds. Then the seeds fell or blew off and planted themselves.

Annuals "can" come back but don't always. Sometimes pansies will even come back and they are definately annuals. And they can change color for sure. It can also depnd ont he acidity of the soil and how that changes as to what the color will be.

I have several that will do that as well. The nursery told me not to expect it, but it can happen. My mums died last year just as soon as I planted them. They are coming back and are HUGE! Can't wait till they bloom! I'll also have a petunia or marigold here and there that does that. It's always a bonus when it does happen! Guess I won't have to plant any this fall now!
