First attempt. It gets am sun. I thought maybe it wasn't enough water so I watered again. It still looks just as sick. The rest in the container are doing ok. Any help would be appreciated.

I would cut the sick one off.

RE: Sick Snapdragon

Most likely your weather is now too hot for it. Snapdragons are cool weather annuals like pansies. We plant them in the fall and once the hot summer heat moves in, we pull them out and replace them with a heat loving annual like salvias.

RE: Sick Snapdragon

I want to echos Donnabaskets' comment. Snapdragons just don't handle hot weather well. In that way, they're a lot like pansies. They tend to get leggy or spindly during the summer, if they survive at all.
