Twinspur

Related to the annual Snapdragon, this Native South African plant can be treated as a perennial if grown in the temperate gardening zone Zone 8-10 or can be replaced each year as an annual.  By deadheading its blooms you can encourage a second flowering as well as cutting back in the summer heat to give it renewed growth and tidy appearance.
