[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Antirrhinum majus (Scrophulariaceae) is a large wild Snapdragon found in cliffs of the Upper Galilee and on roadsides of that region. Some believe it was brought to our region by the Crusaders. About 25 years ago it was introduced to the Judean Hills where it does well. As it makes large amounts if tiny seeds, it spreads very fast. It is a tall shrublet that may reach 150 cm in height. This particular specimen was unexpectedly found on a road-side near the sources of the Jordan River.
