Description

Snapdragons were amongst the first flowers I ever grew for cutting (along with cosmos), as a devotee of the dark, rich colours such as ‘Liberty Crimson’. I’ve embraced these long-flowering Chantilly snapdragons — and have a great fondness for this fruity mix of scented forms.

This collection contains 5 seedlings each of:
  • Antirrhinum majus 'Chantilly Velvet' F1
  • Antirrhinum majus 'Chantilly Deep Orange' F1

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.
