Snapdragon Costa Summer Lavender
Snapdragon ‘Costa Summer Lavender’
When I think of my grandma’s garden, snapdragons are one of the first flowers that come to mind. The intricate flowers on this old-fashioned favorite resemble tiny dragon faces. Smoky mauve-pink buds are carried on beautiful light brown stems. Flowers start out a warm smoky rose-lavender and open to a metallic silvery pink. This variety has a moody quality versatile for flower arranging. Plants are super-productive and have long, strong stems.
