Companion/mix plant suggestions for Snapdragons?
I have two garden areas that I want to mass Snapdragons in but I'd like to mix in something else for foliage contrast and color between blooms. I plan to Winter Sow seeds, and I'm starting to plan orders already (I know, way too early but I'm a newbie and this is the first year and . . .)
I'm looking for something simple to sow and grow, blooms thru summer, pref long-lasting flowers. Coreopsis tinctoria comes to mind, needle foliage and upright manner, but it may not show well among the Snaps foliage, that's why I thought about Larkspur to gain some height. Anyone have other ideas?
I do plan on using Digit's "pinch a third every ten days" scheme to extend the Snaps bloom periods, but looking for something extra for the first few years of the beds as they fill in - one is a 5'x8' oval raised island, the other a 2'x4' section of the back border.
