Common Name: Snapdragon Potomac Costa Silver Pale Blush
Scientific Name: Antirrhinum majus
Life Cycle: Annual
Remarks: Pale blush-pink blooms, spring and autumn production.
If you would like a bushier plant that produces more flower-producing side branches, pinch young plants back by half their height when plants have formed 4-6 leaves or are approximately 8-10cm tall.
Pinching will delay the crop time by a few weeks. If pinching, space plants 15-30cm apart. Direct seeding is not recommended.
Type Of Seed: Hybrid, is the offspring of a cross between two or more parent lines, usually the same species. This is to improve the traits for growing. These seeds can not be saved, as they will not grow as vigorous and not stay true to the parent plant.
Height: When grown as a one-cut, stems can be as long as the full height of the plants. When grown for multiple cuts per plant, stems vary in length at 30-90cm.
Planting advice: Light is required for germination, but a fine layer of vermiculite covering the seeds can maintain moisture levels and prevent algae growth.
Germination should occur in 14 days at 21–24°C however they can be slow to germinate.
After emergence, maintain a soil temperature of 18–24°C.
After the seedlings have 3–5 true leaves, grow at 10–14°C at night and 16°C during the day.
Snapdragon Potomac will flower in mid spring to early autumn.
