(Group 4)

Brings a key colour in the dark pink/rose category in line with the newer breeding in the Potomac series; a great match to Pink. Replaces Rose with a more uniform flowering variety and improved bud taper.

Harvest Recommendation: Harvest stems when 5-6 florets have opened. Keep snapdragons vertical after harvest to prevent stems from curling.

Post-Harvest Recommendation: Snapdragons are sensitive to ethylene; it is recommended to treat with an ethylene-inhibiting product after harvest. Hydrate and store in a cooler at 2-5°C (36-41°F) in commercial floral holding solution at the manufacturer recommended rates. Always keep snapdragon stems vertical during storage.

Vase Life Recommendation: 7-10 days
