Excerpt from Antirrhinums and Pentstemons

Few, surely, who have any love at all for flowers fail to recall the old-fashioned Antirrhinums that grew and blossomed with extravagant freedom in our grandmothers' gardens. We called them by such names as Snapdragon and Bunnies' Mouths, and even before we were old enough to appreciate their beauty we found amusement in pinching the tube of the blossom to make it open its mouth.

True, those old-fashioned cottage-garden flowers were, generally speaking, of somewhat dull or washy colours; the spikes and the individual blossoms were small, and the plants were of straggling and ungainly habit; but they had always that much to their credit, that they were hardy enough to grow anywhere, to look after themselves, and they were continuously in bloom from the very beginning of summer to the very end of autumn.

A plant with such characteristics was bound to find its way into the gardens of those who, whilst having a love for flowers around the homestead, had little of cultural knowledge, spare time, or money to spend upon their gardens, and it was because the Antirrhinum was strong and prolific that it survived the battles for existence and became widespread throughout Cottage Gardendom, where the law of Survival of the Fittest was often as inexorable as on the hillsides and wide wastes of the open countryside.
