DescriptionThis variety has now sold out. You may like Sarah Raven Antirrhinum Collection instead.
A brilliant coral to use as a zappy contrast with its cousin ‘Giant White’ or mixed with ‘Potomac Crimson’ for a real jungle-rumble in a border, large pot or vase.
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.
