Antirrhinum 'Bizarre Hybrids' is stylish and unusual like Venetian, marbled paper, I love to scatter the odd flower stem of this in with the rich 'Liberty Crimson', or arrange as a single stem. Brilliant, unusual and unmissable.

These snapdragons can be various colours, but all have a degree of mottling on them.

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.

You can over-winter these in a cold frame, for huge, early flowers in May, or just sow in early spring for picking in summer and autumn. These varieties have also all been bred for good rust resistance.
