It’s a brand-new color palette for merry Snaps! Twinny Appleblossom opens pale pink to cream, maturing to nearly white over its long season. These large “butterfly” (double) blooms jostle one another for space on compact dwarf plants. Standing tough despite harsh spring or fall weather, this bedding plant is just right for containers as well as the sunny bed.
The Twinny series is the first Snap to offer double-flowered blooms on a dwarf habit, and Twinny Appleblossom adds another innovation — unique pastel-toned blooms that change colors as they mature! Most Snaps are boldly painted in bright primaries, but this one offers soft, saturated color, beautifully blended so that each flower looks handpainted. And you’ll be able to enjoy them up close, because the stems are ideal for cutting, and you get so many blooms you’ll have plenty for the garden, too.
Combine Twinny Appleblossom with other luscious colors in the series, or with Pansies in the cool-season garden. Just 12 inches high and up to 8 inches wide, Twinny Appleblossom is nicely compact, and it makes the most of its smaller space. The flowers continue over a long season, and the plant is equally suited for spring or fall, being quite weather-resistant. This is the Snap to grow in that “risky” spot where others may have failed. Given sunshine and well-drained soil, it’s prepared to grow vigorously and flower freely.
Sow the seed indoors about 10 to 12 weeks before you want flowers. Twinny Appleblossom needs cool conditions to flourish, and may even be a winter crop in hot climates. Pkt is 100 seeds.
