More Details

Antirrhinum 'Crimson' has tall, velvety, rich flowers in a voluptuous deep crimson. This has remained one of our bestsellers.

Snapdragons are invaluable plants for their full flower spikes, which last well over a week in water. We sell the elegant, single-colour, tall florist's varieties, which are now very difficult to find.

These varieties have also all been bred for good rust resistance.

All three of the antirrhinums have performed very well. The colours are delightful and with deadheading the second flush of flowers is coming on even better than the first. They have done just what I wanted.

Good germination and nice strong plants. I have grown these before and although they took until July to flower in the first year they survived the winter and gave a much earlier flowering in the second year but then died in all the scorching sun of summer 2918.
Hopefully this batch will also survive the winter as they are a lovely rich colour.

Outstanding. All germinated, each one a complete winner, still going with deadheading, ravishing colour, real presence. One of my few definites for next year.

I will definitely grown more than one pack of these next year. Stunning, velvety, luscious flower spikes and watching bees climb into the flower as if through a trap door and then emerge covered in pollen is a real treat.

So beautiful!

Grew these from seed last year. Beautiful, luscious looking flowers (2 have survived the winter Southern Ireland), and look even stronger this Spring!

Truly luscious, I can't stop looking at them. Mine has flowered all summer and is still flowering now in early November here in Cheshire. I would definitely buy these again. Really strong plants.

The classiest of the classics

This variety of snapdragon has the most wondrous blooms tall spires of brilliant rouge in velvet. Sow them in February on a windowsill and prick out once they have got growing well - pinch them out for bushy plants. I've cut them back in Late July and they have then go on to over winter in our northern garden and then bloomed better and bigger the following year !
