Night and Day is a robust, long-blooming, and visually striking cousin of the Black Prince snapdragon. It makes an attractive border along a walkway or accent in the flower garden. Night and Day's flowers have a spicy scent and are absolutely gorgeous cut flowers! When the weather cools in fall, its dark red petals turn nearly black, and it's foliage turns dark burgundy, enhancing the contrast with its lower white jaws. (approx. 500 seeds/pkt)
