How to use "Wild snapdragon" in context?
Snapdragon is a genus of perennial succulent plants in the Stonecrop family. Forty species are currently accepted, all of which are native to southern Africa, Australia, and Antarctica.
The genus is named after the Dutch botanist Pieter Claeszoon Jacops, who first described the plants in 1676. Species are distinguished by their rough, overlapping scales, and the flowers are borne in inflorescences of up to 100 individual flowers.
The plants are high-spreading ground cover plants that can reach up to one metre in height, and they require well-drained soil.
