The Snapdragon is a fun and unique flower! It's said that the name for this colourful flower comes from the snap it makes when the sides of the "dragon's mouth" are gently squeezed. Snapdragons, much like the mythical creature, symbolize grace and strength, but can also symbolize deviousness! Snapdragons have been associated with magic since the time of the ancient Greeks. Colours in and of themselves were thought to contain magical properties. Purple Snapdragons were associated with spirituality and those who have learned about spiritual (or magical) mysteries.
