Did you know snapdragon seed pods look like tiny human skulls? Yeah, it's just a random trick of nature, but you have to admit it's pretty cool.
Snapdragons are native to rocky areas of Europe, the United States, and North Africa. They got their name because when you squeeze the sides of a flower with your fingers, the flower appears to be a creature opening and closing its mouth.
In Asia, snapdragons are often called rabbit’s lips, and in Holland they are called lion’s lips. People have been cultivating snapdragons since the 1700s. They make great garden flowers, and they attract butterflies and bees.
Not surprisingly, snapdragons were important in historical folklore, including the belief that they offer protection from witchcraft.
