Snapdragons are the ideal way to lift your spirits with flowers. Commonly known as “Antirrhinums” or “dragon flowers” owing to the flowers’ resemblance to a dragon’s face with two lobes that open and close when the mouth is squeezed laterally, it’s no big surprise that these towering blooms are a symbol of strength. Snapdragons are also an English garden favourite, bursting with colour and texture as they grow tall above the flower beds.

Available in a range of white, pink, lavender, fuchsia, red, coral and purple, they have a shade for every home and every celebration. Available almost all year round, we make it simple to send snapdragons online and to add a burst of colour and joy to your home.
