0080 ANTIRRHINUM MADAME
A mixture of tall flower types with a wide
range of warm colours. The completely double
Azalea shaped flowers are larger than standard
Snapdragons providing fuller more graceful flow-
er spikes. In addition to unusual garden beauty,
they make superb cut flowers. Vigorous hybrid
plants are basal branching.
Pure White Snapdragon for the summer garden
border and for cutting. The upright strong stems
average 10-15 blooms that are renowned for their
opposing upper and lower petals. To encourage
branching, pinch out the tips of the young plants.
After they are finished blooming, trim back and
they will quickly come away again.
AQUILEGIA — COLUMBINE
Also known as Granny’s Bonnets. The spurs of
the flowers resemble an eagle’s claw, the name
Aquilegia coming from the Latin aquila meaning
eagle. Some varieties or species have very short
spurs, or in the case of Nora Barlow type none at
all. The Columbine, which now appears to be
regaining the popularity it had in Victorian times,
is easily grown in almost any situation that does
not become too dry. These delightful early
flowering perennials grow in sun or semi-shade.
Do not cover seeds as germination is improved
by light. Pre-chilling Aquilegia seeds in a
refrigerator at 5oC for three weeks before
sowing also assists germination, which can
take up to two months.
0090 AQUILEGIA CHOCOLATE
A most attractive, unique and fashionable
colour combination with the five flower petals
an unusual Chocolate-Purple colour, plus the
perfectly contrasted bright yellow-green
stamens and anthers. An added bonus is its
sweet fragrance that can fill a garden on a sunny
day. Also suitable for the rockery or in containers.
