Snapdragon – Orange Wonder

$3.90

Description

2-3 foot spires sporting sunset hues of tangerine, peach, cantaloupe, and apricot will transport your mind to a beach paradise faraway. Aptly named, our whole farm crew constantly marvels how thrilled we are that this variety is open-pollinated. There are innumerable hybid snapdragons with eye-popping color combos, but after two years of big trials, Orange Wonder felt like a true diamond in the rough of OP snapdragonland.  Bees, butterflies, cut flower growers and anyone else with a pulse (except deer!) will adore this wonder child.
