Description

This is an unusually coloured snapdragon, with smoky, silvery pink flowers on colossal stems. It’s ghostly and glamorous and has a great vase life, up to 10 days if you keep it cool.

If you have ordered these seeds, we have had unforeseen delays and they will now be available early March. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Care Tips

They will need staking, or growing up through horizontally stretched jute netting. Keep picking (not to the ground but to above a pair of leaves), and these will keep flowering for months at a time.
