    Oh, you did not read the "earlier this season part":( they are False Dragonheads, not snapdragons. Hmmm.....Smaller dragons.....I will check and see if my snapdragons have learned to multiply...... Jurassic park in Chelmsford?

    Perhaps read this: https://www.gardenstew.com/threads/...ply-by-two-3-6-12-24-48-96.41335/#post-379300

    These are the seeds from the flowers in the earlier post.....each year there have been twice as many as the year before. The seeds and roots are probably why.....or maybe rabbit poo? Everyone knows rabbits can multiply.;)

    I recognised the seed heads as I have this plant in my own garden. We call them "hinge flower" (literally translated from Dutch), because one can push the blooms left and right and they move as if they are in a hinge.
    I really like this plant and they come in such lovely colours.
