Antirrhinum (Snapdragaon)
Antirrhinum 'Cinnamon Bronze'/'Double Azalea Apricot'

Snapdragon 'Cinnamon Bronze'
picture: Plants of Distinction

Single colours are hard to come by in tall antirrhinums but now we have this impressive azalea-flowered variety in a gorgeous rich apricot salmon joining the white, lemon and pink from the same stable.

Reaching 4ft/1.2m in height, the extra petals in the centre of the flowers not only give them more substance but because the bees cannot enter the flowers to pollinate them they last longer before going to seed.

If planted out in good time, it's usually worth pinching out the tips of the young plants to encourage branching; you'll probably end up with ten spikes per plant instead of three.

And remember that with its extra height this variety will propbably need staking.

Type: Half-hardy annual (perennial in zone 9 and above)
Height: 4ft/1.2m, sometimes more.
Season: early summer to first frosts
Situation: Full sun to half shade, good soil.
