Snapdragon - Madame Butterfly Bronze


Sale price$5.80

Another of my long time favourite snapdragons! It has to most amazing depth of colour as it slowly morphs down the stem, fading from coral salmon tones through to orange peach as they open.

Mid-late flowering, the Madame Butterfly make the perfect pair with early flowering Chantilly & Costa snaps, easily extending the harvest season from the same planting time. With their double open azalea shaped flowers they're also way more fun & interesting than standard shaped snaps.

Full Sun



Can be grown as either quick one cut plants, planted very close (10cm) or pinched and planted further apart 22cm.

Rust can be an issue when grown over summer, but is less of an issue over winter and when they are kept thoroughly harvested and always pumping out fresh new growth.

Snapdragons absolutely need support, and more support than you'd think they'd need. Once they fall over they will bend to keep growing upright.
