The antirrhinum majus plant is sturdy and the leaves are simple, thin, smooth and narrow. The upper leaves are alternate while the lower ones are pods opposite. The long spikes bear flowers in row which are tubular in form and have two conspicuous curiously shaped tips at the top.
The plant survives in a well drained soil and under dry conditions. Pinching is done when the plant is 15 cm in height which increases the number of flower but reduces the size. Excess manure contributes more towards the foliage growth. In March a top dressing of ammonium sulphate and sulphates of potash is good for the bloom.
