Interesting Notes about Snapdragon:

The snapdragon is thusly named because initally their flower openings are 'snapped' shut until the bumble bee comes along to pry them open for pollination at which time they become like 'dragons'.  They are popular for cutting because the buds literally line the stems creating spikes of fabulous color for long periods, whether in ground or cut for a summer bouquet.
