Plant details

Snapdragons are old-fashioned cottage garden plants. They come in a range of different colours and heights, and therefore can be grown in a variety of situations. Antirrhinum majus 'Royal Bride' is a new strain, which not only grows to a height of 90cm, but also, unusually for snapdragons, has a fragrance. Spikes of beautiful pure white flowers top tall, stately plants with rich green foliage. Grow at the back of an ornamental border or in your cuttings patch - it makes an excellent cut flower. For best results grow in free-draining soil in full sun. To prolong flowering, feed weekly with a potash-rich fertiliser and deadhead spent blooms regularly.
