We are very excited to have this new colour form of the Chantilly series snapdragons, which flowers right through summer and often into autumn, as long as you keep picking! Tall stems with open-facing flowers in a beautiful shade, fading in a lovely way down the stem. A new firm favourite.
Antirrhinum flowers are edible and can be used to decorate puddings, cakes or party cocktails. They are not to everyone's taste as they are slightly bitter, but they're completely safe to eat.
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.
