Annual Plants


Annual plants fall under two categories - hardy and half-hardy. Hardy annuals can be grown outdoors and will tolerate cooler tempratures, whereas the more tender half-hardy annuals need protection and must not be planted out until all risk of frost has passed. These delightful summer flowers add colour and interest to beds, borders, containers and hanging baskets. Use the selections in the left menu to select the right plants for your garden.

Antirrhinum 'Autumn Dragons Mixed' (Garden Ready)

Snapdragon

  • The fast-track to a hassle-free garden - just plant, water and enjoy!
  • Quality plants delivered to your door, hardened off and ready to plant out
  • Fully-grown, super-robust, healthy plants
Our garden ready plants are selected for garden performance, straight from the nursery. We send them to you 'green' ahead of flowering (but please note some varieties may show a few blooms), which means plants will establish quickly and all their energy goes into producing better roots, so they produce more flowers throughout the season.

We've timed the production of our garden ready Snapdragons to ensure dazzling summer colour in your garden right through autumn. As other summer performers start to fade at the end of the season, the classic colour collection of Antirrhinum 'Autumn Dragons Mixed' will take over, shining forth from September right into November. Not only will you get a strong flash of welcome late season colour, this cheery mix also offers an unusual bubblegum fragrance. Sturdy branching around the main stem ensures a constant supply of flower spikes, making 'Autumn Dragons Mixed' the perfect option for late season home cut flowers. Set this autumn flowering antirrhinum in beds and borders or add to patio pots for a bright and breezy late season display. Height and spread: 60cm (24"). Spread:15cm (6").
