Snapdragon ‘Chantilly Bronze’
Snapdragon ‘Chantilly Bronze’ have rare open faced flowers with a distinctive white throat, on long strong stems.
This Snapdragon variety is early to bloom and much more delicate looking than the traditional ‘bunny types’.
Tall and stately, they happily grow outside giving dramatic garden decoration as well as a supreme cut flower.
I’m thrilled that I can now share these seed varieties with you. Choose other colours in the range to mix and match giving endless vase combinations as well as this essential ‘Bronze’ variety!
