description for "Snapdragon: Antirrhinum majus 'Chantilly F1'"

These enchanting snapdragons have plump, open-faced, bell-shaped flouted 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 _ feet tall and branch nicely from the base, forming a charming candelabra of blossoms. Heat and wind-resistant, 'Chantilly' adds height, color and texture to garden beds and provides abundant gorgeous summer bouquets. Feed and water well and keep spent flower stalks cut off for longest bloom season. Cut stalks when 8 to 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 autumn to bloom in spring with pansies, sweet William, Calendula and Agrostemma. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
