How do you identify snapdragon flowers?
Flowers are 3 to 4.5cm long and have two lips that open when the sides of the flower are compressed, thus the common name implying a dragon’s mouth. Most wild plants have pinkish purple flowers with yellow-and-white areas where the two lips touch.
What flower is similar to snapdragon?
Toadflax has butter-yellow blossoms with the same jawlike shape as garden snapdragons, and while yellow toadflax (“Linaria vulgaris”) has long, blade-shaped leaves similar to garden snapdragon foliage, dalmation toadflax (“Linaria dalmatica”) has heart-shaped leaves.
Are snapdragon flowers poisonous?
Snapdragons make it onto edible flower lists, but only for their ornamental value; in fact, of all the edible flowers, the snapdragon is probably the last on the list. Its edibility isn’t in doubt; it won’t poison you, but do you want to eat it?
Are snapdragon leaves poisonous?
Colorful snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus) are nontoxic to dogs, cats, and horses, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and researchers at the University of California include snapdragons on their list of safe plants for adults and children.
