A hugely prolific and long-flowering pure white Antirrhinum of the Chantilly type.
This has open flowers, without the usual Snapdragon double lip, easy and super-reliable and hardier than other Antirrhinum types, surviving the winter outside with us in Sussex. The Chantillys also have a delicious scent and excellent vase life.
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.
