PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Antirrhinum majus ssp. tortuosum|
|The seeds of this unusual variety of antirrhinum were collected in the Rif Mountains, Morocco. The plant has a rather lax, sprawling habit and bright, purplish-red blooms, Although a perennial, antirrhinums are usually treated as annuals, but you can try cutting them back from late autumn to early spring.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Antirrhinums need light to germinate. Sow in Spring, covering with a very thin layer of soil or compost. Transfer seedlings to pots or modules and grow on until large enough to plant out, 6-10in/15-25-mm apart. Germination time 7-14 days.|
