Antirrhinum (Snapdragon)
Antirrhinum 'Purple & White Bells'

New for 2000!

Snapdragon 'Purple & White Bells'
picture: Thompson & Morgan

The Bells Series of dwarf antirrhinums is one of the most prolific of all and with its open-throated flowers which are less suited to bees they always keeps flowering a little longer than traditional snapdragons. This new release from the seven colour series has flared flowers which are purple with a pure white tube behind making it a dramatic dwarf antirrhinum and a cut above the usual snapdragon.

White-throated snapdragons were popular in Victorian times abut this modern version has more flower power, is neater and more suitable for containers than older and taller varieties of this type. 'Bells Purple & White' looks great with the shimmering silver leaves of Cineraria 'Silverdust'.

Type: Half-hardy annual (perennial in zone 9 and above)
Height: 8-10im/20-30c5cm.
Season: early summer to first frosts
Situation: Full sun to half shade, good soil.
