The Magic Carpet Snapdragon is a dwarf plant that has a trailing habit that makes it excellent for border fronts, planter boxes, and as an unusual groundcover.
Magic Carpet Snapdragons bloom in spring to early summer, displaying shades of red, white, yellow, and pink on 10-15 cm flower stalks. They prefer and will bloom best in full sun.

They can be used in old-fashioned gardens and are also an excellent choice as a cut flower. Snapdragons attract bees and other beneficial insects for pollination.
To prolong the blooming time, removing the spent flowers is recommended. 

Antirrhinum majus originates from southern-central France and the eastern Pyrenees to north-eastern Spain and the Balearic Islands.

Adaptable to most well-drained garden soils in an open sunny position

Snapdragon can be grown throughout the year in most Australian climates. Avoid sowing in the hottest and coldest months.

Tropical: Autumn to Early Spring.

  • As with all seeds, they must have adequate water to keep them moist but not too wet
