Antirrhinum cirrhigerum

Antirrhinum cirrhigerum
Synonym(s) Antirrhinum majus ssp. cirrhigerum
Common name wolf-mouth
Family scrophulariaceae
Life cycle
Flowers pink
Light sun

Snapdragon native to Portugal, Spain, and Morocco. Described as a subshrub, so it may be perennial. A few of our seedlings overwintered, and started blooming in late March. The flowers are similar to those of other snapdragons, but the overall appearance of the plants is not, due to their looser structure and wiry stems. Overall probably less garden-worthy than the common snapdragon, but still a nice rambling filler, which suits my gardening style.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: rock garden zone
