Antirrhinum majus, the cultivated garden snapdragon

Antirrhinum majus (Common/Garden Snapdragon)

We came across these gorgeous beauties at one of the many nurseries along Sungai Buloh road less than two years ago. There were many plants with numerous colourful flowers that fascinated us so!

Thus, we happily grabbed a pot of light pink-coloured garden snapdragon that cost us RM8.90 without hesitation.

This garden plant is commonly known as Snapdragon due to the flower’s ability to snap open like a dragon’s mouth when its throat is squeezed laterally.

Needless to say that it didn’t thrive in our garden for long, probably less than six months due to our ignorance in caring for them. Nevertheless, if opportunity presents itself at a nursery in the neighbourhood, we’ll definitely add the Antirrhinum majus to our garden collection again.
