Antirrhinum majus, Snapdragon Madame Butterfly Ivory with double flowers
If you haven’t experienced the beauty of butterfly snapdragons yet, now is the perfect time to give them a try! These remarkable flowers are sure to become your new favorite type of snapdragon. Unlike the traditional dragon-shaped heads, butterfly snapdragons open up to reveal a unique double layer of petals.

This specific variety belongs to the Madame Butterfly series and showcases elegant white to ivory tones. What truly sets them apart from regular snapdragons is their delightful sweet scent, adding an extra sensory delight to your garden.

How to grow double flower Snapdragon Madame Butterfly ivory from seed
Snapdragons possess some of the smallest seeds among all plants, and while sowing them can be a bit challenging, the rewards are truly worth it. Given their light-dependent germination, I suggest not covering the seeds when sowing. For those in regions with mild winters, autumn is an ideal time to start sowing. Alternatively, you can sow the seeds in early spring using seed trays in a greenhouse, polytunnel, or on a windowsill. These half-hardy plants can be transplanted outdoors in late spring.

To support the tall and heavy stems of snapdragons, it’s beneficial to provide them with some form of support. Regularly removing dead flowers will encourage continuous blooming and maintain the overall health of the plants.

If you wish to promote new growth, consider cutting the stems back deep into the plant. This pruning technique will stimulate the emergence of new shoots just below the cut. Snapdragons also serve as excellent cut flowers. When harvesting, select stems with the first few flowers starting to open and remove most of the foliage. With proper care, we have observed stems lasting up to two weeks, adding beauty to your indoor floral arrangements.
