Snapdragons or dragons with their bright, snout-shaped blossoms, are named because of the flowers' resemblance to the face of a dragon that opens and closes its mouth when laterally squeezed. The name is also derived from the "snap"� the blooms make when squeezed . They may have originally been wildflowers from Spain and Italy. Legend has it that a concealed snapdragon can make someone seem fascinating. Each floral arrangement is hand-delivered by a local Teleflora florist. Same-day flower delivery is available.
Antirrhinum, the snapdragon's botanical name, is derived from the Greek words "anti," meaning like, and "rhin," meaning nose, is a fitting description of this snout-shaped flower.
