In respect to this, can snapdragons survive winter?

Snapdragons are truly a short lived perennial that is usually grown as an annual, especially in colder climates. In mild winters or when grown in a sheltered location a plant or two may survive the winter.

Beside above, do snapdragons flower more than once? Snapdragons are tender perennials that are only hardy in U.S. Department of Agriculture Hardiness Zones 8 or 9. They can repeat bloom throughout the season but do best in the cool of spring and fall and throughout the winter in mild climates.

In respect to this, do snapdragons reseed themselves?

Snapdragons propagate either by seed or cuttings. They are considered a “self-seeding” annual. When left alone, seeds from spent flowers will fall to the ground, survive the winter (up to -30 degrees!), and come back the next year as new plants. If sowing seeds outdoors, they should be sown after frost.
