Plant Details

Masses of delicate purple-blue snapdragon flowers throughout summer.

The dwarf snapdragon, Chaenorhinum origanifolium, is an alpine plant with a delightful spreading habit. Suitable for growing in a rockery or scree, it forms tumbling cushions of tiny rounded dark green leaves with purple undersides. In spring and summer these are complemented by small purple snapdragon flowers with yellow throats. 

Excellent for rockery, gravel garden or alpine container.

Loved by bees and butterflies.

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
