About Snapdragon Seeds - Madame Butterfly Red

Antirrhinum majus

Seed Type Hybrid F1 Seed
Plant Type Madame Butterfly

Frequently referred to as azalea snapdragons, Madame Butterfly Red Snapdragons are cherished for their delightful fragrance, rich velvet red hue, and enduring double blossoms. Thanks to their abundant petals, they pose a challenge for insects to pollinate, resulting in longer-lasting blooms in vases compared to single-flowered varieties. The double petals of Madame Butterfly create lush, fluffy blossoms reminiscent of a Victorian aesthetic.
