Description

A cheery and pretty mix of antirrhinums (or snapdragons) which excelled in our trials last summer, giving us endless buckets of flowers for a three month stretch. I found the colours brilliant, mixed up together, or picked as single colours for combining with other flowers — versatile and hard-working, with a superb vase life.

Care Tips

Choose a spot in full sun or light shade, ideally with moist but well-drained soil. For growing in pots, use as large a container as possible. Keep picking (not to the ground but to above a pair of leaves), and these will keep flowering.
