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 ‘Night and Day’ is a attractive variety with dark foliage that provides the perfect foil for spikes of dark, velvety-crimson flowers with sharply contrasting silvery-white throats. It’s perfect for growing in a mixed border and makes an excellent cut flower. Its blooms are particularly attractive to bumblebees.
