Snapdragons are a wonderful addition to the garden whether in the garden beds or in pretty containers set around the garden. Snapdragons’ botanical name is Antirrhinum majus. The Latin, Antirrhinum means “like a snout” or “counterfeiting nose”.

They grow to be a height of 15 to 120 centimetres (6 to 48 inches), depending on whether they are dwarf, medium or tall varieties. Snapdragons are a long blooming flower to choose for your garden as they will bloom throughout most of the gardening season.
