Description

A pretty and feminine colour mix of 'Chantilly' antirrhinums which flower super long and hard. The 'Chantilly' series have a wonderful scent and open flowers, without the usual Snapdragon double lip. These are easy, prolific, super reliable and hardier than other antirrhinums. Arranged here with Lavatera 'Dwarf Pink Blush'.

This collection contains a seed mix, or 5 or 10 seedlings each of:
  • Antirrhinum majus 'Chantilly Light Pink' F1
  • Antirrhinum majus 'Chantilly Pink' F1
  • Antirrhinum majus 'Chantilly White' F1

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.

Care Tips

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.
