Valley Apple Blossom Snapdragon - When we took over this old heritage 1860’s farm in rural Nova Scotia, we spent the first two months discovering and identifying plants, many of them had been here for decades. One of the old heirloom flowers that continued to self seed near an old Gravenstien apple stump was a remarkable stand of uniquely deep, dark-pink and creamy white flowers . Fitting that they would in fact be identified as ‘Apple Blossom’ Snapdragon. We know they pre-date 1971 when the previous owners moved in. We were delighted with the delicately nodding pink-rose/creamy white flowers from the 30-40 plants.
Last year we finally lined out our selections and were amazed once again with this flower. What a unique crew of hardy survivors we uncovered. Familiar as a cut flower and a border plant, Apple Blossom Snapdragon are also highly attractive to bees and butterflies. We are addicted to these lovely botanical gems and intend to plant more this year!
