Does anyone know what variety this perennial snapdragon is?

It is definitely perennial in my zone. Growth comes off of the same plant every year. Here's what it looks like:

Thanks!

It's not really possible to name specific snapdragons from a picture. They hybridise with abandon and throw up seedlings with all sorts of colours. Just call it a pinky-orange Antirrhinum majus. They are all perennial under the right conditions.

Yes, it has been perennial (the same plant) for 4 years. It is the only snapdragon I have. I'm not an idiot, lol, I know what plants would be seedlings and which would be the same plant coming back :)

Antirrhium majus is a perennial. Even if it dies over the winter in some climates it is still a perennial botanically speaking.

Thanks flora :) I know it's a perennial because I can see the plant even now when everything else has died back in my garden. It's still green as can be. Thank you for letting me know the botanical name!
