A trio of the new ‘Chantilly’ series of snapdragons which are hardier than others, in a luxurious velvet palette, to give you tall, elegant flower spikes for many months.This collection contains 5 or 10 seedlings each of:
- Antirrhinum majus 'Chantilly Velvet' F1
- Antirrhinum majus 'Chantilly Deep Orange' F1
- Antirrhinum majus 'Chantilly Purple' 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.
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.
