Snapdragons

Snapdragons are unique flowers with a cute and evocative name that very much fits their playful personality. The blossom of this short-lived perennial really does look like a tiny dragon; and behaves like one, too. When you pinch the dragon “jaw” of the two-lipped, tubular blossom on the sides, it will open and shut again like a hairy dragon's mouth.


These plants bloom in gorgeous hues, including white, yellow, orange, red, pink, purple and bicolor. They're beloved by humans, butterflies and hummingbirds alike! Learn more about this lovely flower, from common types to fun facts involving magic, folklore, health benefits and other fascinating trivia. Falling in love with them is a snap, especially after you learn more about their unique attributes.
