Snapdragon ‘Madame Butterfly Cherry Bronze’
Snapdragon ‘Madame Butterfly Cherry Bronze’ is Bronze but with a rosy glow!
These double snapdragons look like tiny azalea’s, the tight flower heads keep the pollen hidden for longer making them last in the vase than more open types.
So beautiful, they look wonderful arranged just as they as well as giving that all important ‘swoosh’ to arrangements!
For garden decoration they are just majestic!
I’m thrilled that I can now share this brand new seed variety with you! I love it alone or blended with our other shades giving endless vase combinations.
