Miniature purple snapdragons bloom on this perennial ground cover from June into early fall, earning its nicknames of Fairy Snapdragon and Dwarf Snapdragon. Tough enough to come back from Pacific NW winters, it does require well-draining soil and lots of sun. Once established, Fairy Snapdragon is drought tolerant in the ground and can spread 12 - 16 inches wide, possibly naturalizing. Consider using it in container planters or hanging baskets along the edges where it can mound then drape down over the sides.
