Antirrhinums (Snap Dragons)

Antirrhinums (Snap Dragons)

Antirrhinums, (otherwise known as Snap Dragons), were originally thought to be a genus of the Scrophulariaceae family, but DNA studies have led antirrhinums to be included in the Plantaginceae family.

The common name for antirrhinums - 'Snap Dragon' is derived from the dragon face shape of the flowers. When the flowers are gently squeezed the dragon's mouth opens then snaps shut.

The word antirrhinum comes from the Greek word 'anti', meaning 'like' and 'rhis', meaning 'nose'. The name antirrhinum translates to 'like a nose' in Ancient Greek.

On the wholesale flower markets antirrhinums are sold in wraps of 10 stems. The stem length of good quality antirrhinums is usually around 75cm tall.

To get the best from your wholesale cut antirrhinums please read the care instructions below carefully:

  • Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle with a sharp knife.
  • Strip the foilage from below the water line.
  • Fill sterilised buckets with luke warm water and add flower food.
  • Place the antirrhinums in the buckets.
  • Leave over night to condition before using.

Never leave cut flowers in direct sun light, near a radiator, in a draft or near fruit. (The gas used to ripen fruit will harm most flowers). Keep the antirrhinums in a cool place and always keep out of the way of children.
