Snapdragon - Costa Apricota

Antirrhinum majus

It’s hard not to fall in love with this lovely variety of snapdragon at first sight. The long flower spikes come in beautiful yellow, orange, and apricot tones reminiscent of a sunset. The variety has double flowers that with their fluffy appearance resemble azaleas. Costa-Apricota is known for its long vase life and for producing abundant flowers throughout the season. When you pick a flower, the plant quickly produces new shoots, allowing you to create many bouquets all summer long.

In addition to being a popular cut flower, this variety is also incredibly decorative in borders and other types of plantings. It can be planted alone or used as a background plant, intertwined with other summer flowers.

This variety is also edible and can be used as a spice and garnish. Imagine an appetizer with asparagus and a cream made with some Swedish “Västerbotten cheese”. Just before serving, sprinkle a thin layer of Costa-Apricota on top to give the dish that little extra touch. It’s delicious to eat but also beautiful to look at!
