Cut Flower Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
Antirrhinum¬†Rocket (Snapdragon) is a tall variety (75-90cm) and makes an excellent cut flower. It comes in a mix of colours from pink to white to yellow and red.
As kids we used to call them 'Bunny Rabbit Ears' and loved popping them - wouldn't dream of doing that now!
Antirrhinums add fullness, texture and height to a cut flower arrangement. They will keep at their best if the spikes are cut when a third open and last 6-7 days in a vase.
