ANTIRRHINUM 'ANGEL TOWERS'
We have crossed a tall, hardy, wild, perennial antirrhinum with a modern cultivar to produce these long-lived, spectacular new plants. Making tall, dividing, densely-shrubby branches, they have survived for several years here, some of them growing strong trunks. The flower colours vary from palest pink to reddish-purple, and are produced over an extremely long period from early summer into late autumn. They can also self seed producing even more interesting variations!
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
