Do you know what does the Snapdragon flower mean?

.
Snapdragons possess two meanings. This is similar to the mythical creature they resemble, revered in some cultures and feared in others. A snapdragon means grace and, due to its growth in rocky areas, strength. However, it can also symbolize deviousness.
People have loved snapdragons since before the days of the Roman Empire. Snapdragons have become part of human mythology with complex symbolism.
Since a snapdragon is a symbol for both deception and graciousness, sometimes snapdragons are used as a charm against falsehood.
In Victorian times, messages from lovers were secretly sent by flowers. A snapdragon with a flower known for truth-telling, such as a hyacinth, meant that the giver is sorry for making a mistake. Snapdragons also symbolize grace under pressure or inner strength in trying circumstances.
Other common names for snapdragons include lion’s mouth, calf’s snout and toad’s mouth. Snapdragons vary in size from five inches to three feet tall. Only large insects like bumblebees can pollinate snapdragons because the petals are too heavy for smaller insects to push apart. Only one snapdragon and one large insect is needed to make more snapdragons. Another snapdragon plant is not necessary. Snapdragons originated in southern Spain, North Africa and America. The Romans spread snapdragons throughout Europe and through most of their empire. They called snapdragons leonis ora, which translates to “lion mouth.”
Snapdragons have been associated with magic since the time of the ancient Greeks. Colors in and of themselves were thought to contain magical properties. Snapdragons may contain more than one color. New varieties are being developed all the time.
Purple: This is a color associated with spirituality and those who have learned about spiritual (or magical) mysteries.
Red: Passion, love, giving positive energy to the receiver.
Yellow: This sunshine color means smiles, happiness and overall good luck.
White: White symbolizes purity, grace, innocence and also good magic.
