(Antirrhinum majus)
EXCLUSIVE - These enchanting snapdragons have plump, open-faced, bell shaped fluted flowers that are closely spaced along graceful spikes of bloom. They make naturally coordinated bouquets in a pastel watercolor blend of creamy lemon-yellow, softest salmon, warm apricot-bronze, and dainty candy floss pink, some with white throats. Perfect for lovely garden color and as cutting flowers, carefully bred Chantilly plants grow to 2 1/2 feet tall and branch nicely from the base, forming a charming candelabra of blossoms.
Seed Count: 70-75 / Weight: 11 mg

HARDY ANNUAL

Spring/summer/fall bloom
Can handle light frost


TO START SEEDS

Start seeds indoors in a container of seed starting mix in early spring 6 to 8 weeks before the last expected frost. Dampen soil mix evenly before sowing. Sow seeds 1 inch apart, covering only with a fine dusting of mix. Keep evenly moist but not soggy and provide a strong light source until ready to plant outdoors. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, transplant them 2 inches apart into a deeper container. After they reach 2 to 3 inches tall, gradually acclimate sturdy, well-established seedlings to outdoor conditions before transplanting in full sun.


THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 10 to 12 inches apart for best performance.


GROWING NOTES

Heat and wind-resistant Chantilly adds height, color and texture to garden beds and provides abundant gorgeous summer and bouquets. Feed and water well and keep spent flower stalks cut off for longest bloom season. Cut stalks when 8-10 blossoms are open; do not crowd in the vase for best, longest lasting cut flowers. In mild climates, snapdragons can also be planted in late fall to bloom in spring with pansies, Sweet William, calendula and agrostemma.
