More Details

Antirrhinum 'White Giant' is a giant, pure-white snapdragon, excellent growing with Cosmos 'Purity'. It makes a statuesque and beautiful cut flower.

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.

This is my second year of growing Antirrhinum 'White Giant'. I love it in the garden and in the vase. It hasn't bent over despite some windy weather earlier in the year. I highly recommend it.

Fantastic plants

This is my first time growing these and they have been absolutely beautiful. Easy to grow and remained statuesque in the cutting patch I created in my daughter's garden without support. Would highly recommend them. I even got a second place at my village show!
