Product Details

Antirrhinum majus 'Admiral White' Seeds

Admiral White is a tall elegant pure white Snapdragon. It is great for cutting… their flowers add an interesting spire shape to bouquets and floral arrangements. Alternatively grow them in your borders with other tall plants such as Cosmos ‘Sensation’ for a splash of colour or Cosmos ‘Purity’ if you are sticking to a white scheme.

Sow in spring for flowers this summer and autumn. You can also sow Antirrhinums in autumn if you need early flowers next year (for a May wedding for example) Antirrhinums are actually short lived perennials so they will survive in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse over winter.

Genus Antirrhinum majus
Variety Admiral White
Plant Type Treat as Half Hardy Annual (actually short lived perennial)
Height & Spread 90-120cm/3-4 feet tall x 30-45cm/ 1-1.5 feet wide
Sow Seeds Sow seeds indoors in February,March, April and May. Antirrhinum seeds are tiny and need light to germinate so sow them on the surface of compost and water carefully from below. Sow again in August/September for early flowers next year.
Thin/Plant Out Prick seedlings out into individual cells and allow to grow on. Pot on if necessary. Pinch out the tips when the plants reach 10cm/4 inches to encourage branching. Wait until the soil has warmed up then plant outside 30cm apart after the last frost in May.
Conditions Required To produce the best flowers Antirrhinums need nice rich soil and plenty of water until they are established. A sunny spot is best but they will tolerate dappled shade. Admiral White grows 3-4 feet tall so will need support of some kind.
Flower Production Antirrhinums take 12 -14 weeks from seed to flower. March sown plants will be producing their first blooms in June. They usually flower for 3 months. Seeds sown in May will flower from August until October or even longer if the weather is mild.
Picking Pick when it’s cool outside (early morning or evening) and stand them up straight in a tall narrow bucket of clean fresh water. Do not allow them to flop sideways because the tips will bend. Lasts 7-10 days in a vase.
Planting Combinations Admiral White Antirrhinums look brilliant in a white border with Nicotiana Whisper and Cosmos Purity and are lovely with Cornflowers of all colours.
