Hyacinth Plant


Anonymous added on May 20, 2014 | Answered

I planted dwarf Montego lemon yellow dwarf snapdragons throughout the front beds, but a small patch has re-bloomed white instead of yellow. None of my neighbors have snaps visible for cross-pollination. Does anyone know why yellow would come back white? And is there a way to ensure yellow blooms?

You are likely seeing the offspring of the plants or there was a few plants that were mislabled. While they did not have a cross pollinator, they likely are hybrids and their offspring will not look like them (this is done intentionally by the seller to prevent people from collecting seeds and growing them again next year). And mislabled plants do occasionally occur. Whatever the cause, the flowers will not go back to yellow.
