Snapdragon Brighton Rock is an heirloom variety that comes with a lovely blend of pastel bi-coloured blooms. The common name snapdragon originates from the fact that the flower looks like a dragon's mouth having its throat squeezed. If that’s not bizarre enough, the flower seed pods turn into creepy skulls when they die. Perhaps it is because of this ambiguous appearance that in the Victorian language of flowers, it symbolised deception and presumption. Fun fact: Only large insects like bumblebees can pollinate snapdragons because the petals are too heavy for smaller insects to push apart.    Details Open tab Latin name Antirrhinum majus Seeds 1500 seeds Name Snapdragon Variety Brighton Rock Short description An old-fashioned flower, a treasure for bumblebees Plant size Height 45 cm Width 45 cm Container size Height 20 cm Width 20 cm Companion plant Tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, melons, flowers How to grow Open tab Sowing Indoor Not required  Outdoor Apr-June Timing Germination 1
