Snapdragon Madame Butterfly Dark Red
Snapdragon 'Madame Butterfly Dark Red'
Often referred to as azalea snapdragons, these double-petaled beauties are adored for their pleasant perfume, coveted rich velvet-red color and long-lasting blooms. Because the tight shape is difficult for insects to pollinate, blooms last longer in the vase than other single flowered snapdragons.
Plant type: annual
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 110-120 days
Plant spacing: 9-12”
Pinch: when 4-5” tall
Approx seeds per packet: 50
How to Grow:

Snapdragons should be harvested early, before they can be pollinated by insects, when just the bottom 2-3 flowers are open. Expected vase life is 7-10 days and flower food is recommended.
