Antirrhinum majus

Description

Opening from the base of the upright stem in summer, the flowers of this snapdragon are a striking mix of creamy white and rich, burgundy-red. This short-lived plant is usually treated as an annual, but it's perfect for quickly filling gaps in a sunny border.

Harvesting seed

When the snapdragon flowers die, the dried seed pods, which look like tiny, brown, shrunken skulls.

Be sure the pods are dry, then pinch them from the plant and shake the dry, brittle seeds into your hand or a small bowl.

Store in a cool, dry place.
