Antirrhinum

It belongs to the family Scrophulariaceae and it originates from the mediterranean regions. The Antirrhinum is a rustic perennial plant (cultivated a san annual or, at least, biennial) with a woody trunk at the basis and inflorescences with many shades at the end. Its common name “Mouth of the lion” derives from the peculiar shape of the flowers that have a tubular corolla having two formations similar to two lips (the upper one is divided in two lobes and the lower on divided in three ones). It prefers full sunlight and it well withstands low temperatures.
