The very pretty 2.5cm (1in) long snapdragons that will thrive in sun or shade. The "Climbing Snapdragon" comes in shades of red, pink, violet and blue, with speckled creamy lips. This attractive quick-growing half-hardy annual will twine itself around trellises, or creep down from pots. The pale green foliage gives a soft foil for the dainty flowers. Also useful for pots or hanging baskets, flowering from early summer to late winter if protected from frost. Grows to 120-180cm (4-6ft).
Sophisticated climber, masses of 1�in indigo to violet blue, pink or pure white flowers. Quick to bloom from an early sowing. Ideal for the cold greenhouse or conservatory. One of the longest flowering annuals, in bloom untill Christmas if there is no hard frost or in the greenhouse during winter. Climbs to 120-240cm (4-8ft).
Vibrant cerise-purple antirrhinum-like flowers, clasped in lime-green bracts, cascade from delicately arching stems, that grow to 45cm (18in). This half-hardy perennial will flower from early May until cut back by frost. Non-climbing, use in baskets, containers, and window boxes.
