Antirrhinum majus 'Bronze Dragon'
Snapdragon 'Bronze Dragon'
Antirrhinum majus 'Bronze Dragon' are eye-catching, bushy, dwarf plants with the darkest, almost black foliage we have ever seen on an Antirrhinum! Bred by Thompson & Morgan, Bronze Dragon looks almost as attractive before flowering as it does when smothered in its gorgeous, purple and white bicoloured blooms. Truly outstanding in borders or containers and can also boast very good rust resistance.

|Useful/additional information||Sow seed on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp seed compost. Do not cover the seed. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination which usually takes 1-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 23-30cm (9-12in) apart. Remove spent flowers regularly to encourage further blooming.|
