Snapdragon Madame Butterfly Bronze
I’ve a real weakness for these apricot bronze double snapdragons. They look like tiny azalea’s,the tight flower heads keep the pollen hidden making them last even longer in the vase!
So beautiful, they look wonderful arranged just as they are and that all important ‘swoosh’ to your arrangements!
For garden decoration they are just majestic!
I’m thrilled that I can now share these new seed varieties with you. Choose other colours in the range to mix and match giving endless vase combinations as well as this essential ‘Bronze Double’ variety!
