    It is a herbal plant...quote www

    "Antirrhinum majus (common snapdragon) is a species of flowering plant belonging to the genus Antirrhinum. It was used traditionally as a diuretic, for treatment of scurvy, liver disorders and tumors. The leaves and flowers were used as antiphlogistic, resolvent, stimulant and as poultices on tumours and ulcers."
