i like the band of color that matches the flower
Tuesday, December 16, 2014 | Diana Lawrence


I love these snapdragons. Te pot that says A Snap To Grow is the obvious choice.
Tuesday, December 16, 2014 | Anita


These snapdragons are so much better than the old fashioned ones. They are stockier and fuller and easier to care for.
Tuesday, December 16, 2014 | cawalker70655@yahoo.com


These are really pretty. I liked B., it looked brighter.
Tuesday, December 16, 2014 | Patty Yost


Can't wait for these!They are beautiful!
Tuesday, December 16, 2014 | Cat


I like "C" the BEST!!!
It compliments the Flower!!!
Along with the Catchy Phrase!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Linda Chidster


Love the logo and FUN IN THE SUN
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Louise


I like 'C' the best
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Gail


PINK is the color of WAVE. Don't change. I look for the all pink pot!!!!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | bonbalkaprbrdfd@juno.com


I thought "hot & dry" was easy to see for quick ideas of group planting to keep the plants happy in the same spot.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Lucy Crofton


Container gives a very summery appeal! Bright & eye catching!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | S. Dellafera


A Snap To Grow conveys how easy they are to grow
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | momof3boysj


Love the logo and easy to read
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | I like B


I like the look of C best but, voted for A because I always try to put myself in the shoes of someone who's never gardened ... and I want them to have success so that they will come to love gardening as much as I do ... so I thought it was important to prominently display the conditions the plant needs to succeed ... maybe make different color bands on the pots for those who need hot and dry such as this and those who need shade and ones who are happy just about anywhere! :)
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Nancy A Nash Coleman


I like the first one because it's letters are big enough to read and as I grow older myself I find it very frustrating to read some of the labels and if I cannot read the instructions I will not buy it. This pot clearly says HOT & DRY summer a little small but the conditions of growing are most important. summer, spring fall not that important as the vendors Home Depot and other box stores do not put out plants out of season as they receive from you guys so that is less of a worry. So condition to grow is more important. I love wave but getting expensive to buy - maybe you can work on pricing or discount on volume purchase.
Have a great day -
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | mcomito-drago@dunmore.com


choice A because it tells the customer exactly what the plant likes, without have to find a plant stick, pull it out, wipe off the mud & read it...but it do like the original pink wave color on the pot.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | lmnohos


Absolute "A Snap to Grow" looks better, entices the buyer to try it and the colour matches the flower. Hands Down the Best Choice.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Snap to Grow Lover


I like the full sun with happy rays spreading the warmth! And the contrast of the sunny sky against a beautiful green foundation! "B"
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Lori Sato - Warner Robins,GA


A Announces in bold letters the plant is for a hot/dry area.

B. Looks washed out.

C. Looks average
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Cher


Wave's signature color is Pink, that's what people look for when buying. Although, I love the catch phrase, A snap to grow, with the pink also!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Renee - Illinois


I think the band is eye catching and the phrase is VERY cute and catchy.
It would really appeal to the average gardener.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Vicky Marella


I like the large worded Hot and Dry but with the sun in the second one. However you must have a bright band of the "wave" pink on the pot to sell your brand that is known and loved!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | ARG


I like C for color, and description, I am always looking for something that is a "Snap" to grow.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Ed Thomas


The all look the same to me in the photos here just a different lighting ( brightness) - I LOVE them all!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Bren At BGgarden


Too much yellow on A & B distracts from the flower itself... C is best...
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Bill McKee


I think those snap dragons are wonderful, the sanp to grow matches the flower
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Doris Calvert


I like the magenta band color especially with the magenta snap dragons and the yellow sun.
I like the phrase used "a snap to grow" which implies an easy plant to grow in hot, dry climates.
I would buy this product based on the packaging.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Karen Kallmeyer


"C" is obvious, flower color, color of pot, & Logo!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Wes Dietz


A because it catches attention with pot colors and tells you immediately what the plant needs.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Peg Gardnerville NV


c is a natural...being an artist I choose it..However ! Yellow is the first color the eye sees...something to think about...
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | john


I like A the best. Walking through the aisles at my local gardening store, I do not have the time to stop and look at all the pots for COLOR or even WHAT the plant is, more than likely I am looking for a SPECIFIC type of growing condition in mind or with a specific spot in my yard for it, and knowing the ideal growing conditions immediately will get me out of the store faster and back to where I want to me...IN THE YARD!!!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | C.A. Richarme


Love C, but the words HOT AND DRY needs a different color to help it POP out, and larger lettering as we are getting older, and the small print is getting to be such a pain..
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Fran


C - Summer Snapdragons are more prominently identified
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | moon


Angelonia rule!!!!!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Nita


I like B better as the colors just drew my eyes to it. Very bright and cheerful!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Linda Costello


I prefer C. The wording is precise and eye catching for everyone, the beginner and novice gardener.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | judy davidson


I agree wave is Pink so I think there should be more Pink. I like the pot c the best with the text from pot A
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | michiel Verheul


I like the snappy phrase in C but think the information about growing in A is most important, especially to new gardeners. I do look for the pink pots but assoicate those with Wave Petunias so think I could make this change.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | shirley wilhelmsen


I know what is going in my garden this next summer!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Going to Plant this summer


Magenta is my fav color, so the bottom bucket was a no brainer pick for me. I also love that it says "A Snap To Grow" because easy is my fav thing! LOL
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | angie


I like the name and the packaging of Number C it appeals to my eye.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | pam


I love all your plants
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Marty


I've been using Wave for years and have excellent results. I'm always looking for something new and different that will withstand full sun for 6-7 hours a day during our short New England summers and these snap dragons are new to me. Can't wait for Spring so I can get planting once again!!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Judy


Clearer to read and right to the point. A
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Bev Sayers


perfect !!!!!!!
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Annette


I love the color of the pot and the catchy phrase. Your plants are excellent. I buy them every year.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Sharon


A - Answers my planting question.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Jerry


The visual of "A" is most attractive with the colors & the "wave" in the design. The phrase "Hot & Dry" brings thoughts of summer also.

Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Judy Harris


I like the darker purple band. It accentuates the flowers and stands out more than the other pots.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Patty


I like A as it tells me at a glance what I need to know and whether this plant meets my needs. I am usually looking for plants with a particular place in my garden in mind. As catchy as "a snap to grow" or "fun in the sun" sounds, neither slogan tells me anything about the growing conditions the plant needs. I would have to pull out the little stick with the detailed info, and if I don't happen to have my glasses on, would have to dig for them. Since I think of snapdragons as a cool-weather plant, the "hot and dry" would immediately pique my interest and tell me that this must be a new variety of snapdragon. It would make me more likely to want to try it. PS I love your Wave petunias.
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Bea Daspit


I like the hot and dry because that is my summer and I can save on water
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Darlene


"C" has all the information any gardener would need to put your plants in optimal conditions, Wave never disappoints! Living across from a city ballpark, I get lots for questions about my Wave plants every year! Need to get some new types - any contest coming up? LOL
Wednesday, December 17, 2014 | Sue Briley


Really love the beautiful matching colours on Number C.
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | Caron


I choose B as the container looks earthy and colors match with the sun and plant. It also says it will grow best in the SUN and people want something which is easy to grow.
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | Steve Karloski


I use waves all over the place. Can you develop one that white tail deer won't eat! The great part about waves is that even after the deer eat them they grow right back.
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | George P.


I selected C because the color of the container was coordinated with the color of the plant. Looking forward to seeing these in the stores.
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | Andrea


I like C the best. It lets the Snapdragons be center stage in all their beauty.
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | Sue H


The bright sun made me smile, so I am ready for spring and planting.
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | jlotimko


I preferred C although A & B were extremely nice also. The snapdragons are beautiful.
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | Linda Fast


The wave action on A would help me find "Wave" products at a glance but the catchy phrase on C should be moved to A to have a real winner. The words "Hot n Dry" make me think they will be "hot and dead" here in the desert where I live.
The plants are spectacular so I know they won't die but that's where my head went when I read the words...Hot and Dry.

Having worked in several venues helping people select plants for their own gardens, I vote for "B" first choice with "A" a close second. They usually start their search with 'my area is shaded, or its sunny...help me find something that will grow there'. Rarely does anyone ask for summer snapdragons or buy a plant because it has a catchy slogan. I've promoted these plants for years and find them to be an easy plant to grow.
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | MGardener


I agree w/MGardener, I think if people saw the big bold "hot and dry" or "wet and shady" they would have much better luck with all their flowers. It'd be a win-win for everyone. It is probably the #1 reason for success or failure in growing.
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | Evelyn D.


It's quick and self explanatory; "Hot and Dry"; Boom, that's what I need for my front yard which gets just about zero shade in the Summer. I don't have the time to be foraging around plants and looking at the little plastic inserts all the time. It's easy to gravitate towards the pretty flower/pot design, but we need to be practical; it should have in bold letters what climate suits the plant best:) Makes things easier!!!!:)
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | Fluffysquirrel


Pot C is my choice. Not because of the phrase or particular color but because the mostly one hue draws my attention to the item better than several rounds of color. I don't think you want to spend money on matching up a bloom color with pot color. I also think the information about growing a certain plant should be on a stake or something similar stuck in the pot, and that it would be more cost effective to do it that way.

I received your pack of the new red petunias this year. I loved them. They bloomed until a very hard freeze. They were so prolific I decided to count the blooms and at one time in a pot in which I had planted six of the plants, I had about 120 blooms. I deadhead every day and water from a rain barrel as needed and fertilize every couple weeks. I love petunias but I hate to deadhead.
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | Weezi


Pot C! It just all goes together.
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | Bonnie Ambrose


I love anything from Wave! They are so easy to grow! I choose C "A Snap to Grow"
because if they are from Wave they are!
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | bg


C is the best choice! Love Waves products
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | bggarden


Love the phrase "a snap to grow". It is catchy and serves the purpose of letting you know just anyone can get these and be successful.
Friday, December 19, 2014 | Lorrie Cabaniss


We'll be able to the name of the plant from afar! No I'm not gettin' old just helpful when your in a hurry...and who isn't?
Friday, December 19, 2014 | Star City Gal!


Customers(including myself) don't read...unless it is in LARGE PRINT and in our faces.
Pot A is user friendly... customer doesn't have to figure anything out...instant answer.
Friday, December 19, 2014 | Cynthia


I like that it is a hardy summer flower and the color is vibrant.
Saturday, December 20, 2014 | Latonia Boudreau


Looks great to me--really all of them. I would like a pot to try!
Saturday, December 20, 2014 | A GROWER


I like A. Drawn to a plant, only to realize it won't work in it's intended space is heartbreaking.
Sunday, December 21, 2014 | jberry



I like Fun in the Sun. It is more fun to be in the flower gardens when the sun is out.
Monday, December 22, 2014 | Wayne


I prefer the white and purple combination, which has a "clean line" feel to it - this pot design makes the Snapdragon POP
Monday, December 22, 2014 | Anne


It explains the kind of plant it is quick and easy to read. Like that and the color.
Tuesday, January 06, 2015 | Anita


I like the magenta in the third one, it pops out and gets your attention, not to mention it almost matches the contents of the pot!
Monday, January 12, 2015 | Terri K.


C is my favorite. I love the design layout, the colors and of course the witty phrase "A Snap To Grow". I think these will be "A Snap To Sell" :) I know I would love to get some for my garden this year!
Wednesday, January 21, 2015 | Abby L.


Hot and dry gives very important information w/o detracting from the plant. Live in the Central Valley, CA. Going into our fourth year of drought, Our summers can get up to 110 degrees easily in the PM, and with the water curtailments plants have to be able to handle the stress on two fronts.
Tuesday, February 10, 2015 | Kathryn


I love snapdragons, first colorful all year even late fall and they do come back, very hardy love the color in no.3 and the wording and color.
Tuesday, February 10, 2015 | carolyn prenot


I chose container #1 because of the logo design. It is refreshing to see snapdragons in a color other than yellow !
Thursday, February 12, 2015 | Eleanor Schroers


I know snapdragons as a cool flower so I'm always looking for snaps that will survive during hot, dry summer.
Thursday, February 12, 2015 | San


Late to the party, but I like B...where it tells me "takes the heat...tolerates drought."
Tuesday, February 17, 2015 | Linda


Wow i like the art work on the pot....its cool
