Antirrhinum majus 'Madame Butterfly' F1 Hybrid

Snapdragon

Half-hardy Annual

 Customer Rating

  • Customer favourite

Awarded an All American Selection medal for its unusual azalea-shaped snapdragon flowers. Antirrhinum 'Madame Butterfly' creates a riot of colour throughout summer. The unique, double snapdragon petals prevent insects from pollinating the flowers, so they last much longer than single-flowered varieties. Perfect for a long-lasting display in cottage garden beds, borders and containers. This award winning variety also makes a superb cut flower. Height: 65cm (26"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Ideal For:
patio, cottage gardens, wildlife gardens, cut flower garden
Flowering Period:
May, June, July, August
Position:
full sun

Pot up snapdragon plants using free-draining compost, and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. Pinch out growing tips while the plants are still small to encourage bushier growth. Once they are well grown, acclimatise antirrhinum plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting outdoors on fertile, free draining soil in a sheltered, sunny position. Antirrhinums particularly dislike wet ground, so improve heavy soil conditions by adding coarse grit or sharp sand prior to planting.
Feed and water regularly until snapdragons are fully established. Deadhead faded antirrhinum flowers frequently throughout summer to encourage more blooms to be produced.

  1. Great cut flower

    By Erica Fisher 17-09-2013

    Fantastic long lasting cut flower, September now and still flowering like mad. Fantastic colour range, trouble free, just brilliant. Will buy again next year.

  2. Beautiful !

    By Carol Brown 17-08-2013

    Its mid August and these snapdragons have been flowering their socks off for weeks and weeks with no sign of slowing down. My borders have never looked so colourful for so long with such little maintenance, even through the very hot dry spells this summer. I will definately buy them again next year and would urge others to try them too.
