Tall, velvety, rich flowers in a voluptuous deep crimson. This has remained one of my favourites and has been a bestseller for years.
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.
They will need staking, or growing up through horizontally stretched jute netting. Keep picking (not to the ground but to above a pair of leaves), and these will keep flowering for months at a time.
