Description
Classic white snapdragon flowers with random stripes and flecks of vibrant purple create a fascinating 'paint splashed' effect. Unusually tall, this exciting snapdragon is ideal for the back of beds and borders, where the handsome spires will appear from early summer through to September. As with most snapdragons, the blooms of Antirrhinum 'Purple Twist' attract bees and other pollinating insects, and make striking cut flowers for a vase indoors. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Culinary note: These pretty flowers can be used as garnishes or dressings but can have a bland or sometimes bitter taste. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sowing

Sow Antirrhinum seeds indoors or under glass from January to March on the surface of a good quality seed compost and gently firm down. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) or seal inside a clear polythene bag until germination which takes 10 - 21 days. Keep the compost damp but not wet and do not exclude light.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow Snapdragon plants on in cooler conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting outdoors. Plant Snapdragons at a distance of 30cm (12") apart on any light, well drained soil in full sun.

More Info
Feed and water regularly until snapdragons are fully established. Flower stems may require some support from twiggy sticks or canes as they grow. Deadhead faded snapdragon flowers frequently throughout summer to encourage more blooms to be produced.
