This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Members of the summer snapdragon Angelmist® Series are compact, heavy-flowering, heat-loving tender perennials which bloom generously from early summer to frost. The trademark selection Basket Purple features an abundance of dense, showy spikes teeming with medium purple-violet flowers. Marks of white occur in the blossom's throat and core. This plant is lower-growing with a wider habit, good for containers, but not as sprawling to perfectly spill out of hanging baskets.
Narrowleaf angelonia, or summer snapdragon, is an upright perennial to tender perennial native to Mexico and the islands of the West Indies. The neat, clump-forming plants are evergreen in frost-free zones and are commonly treated as annuals in areas with harsh winters. Throughout the growing season, plants bear loose spikes of open, snapdragon-like flowers that appear in shades of pink, purple or white. There are many solid and bicolored cultivars of this ever-blooming, drought tolerant ornamental.
Angelmist® Basket Purple summer snapdragon does best in sites with full sun and average, well-drained soil. For best performance, feed and water regularly. An excellent choice for containers and mixed beds, its showy blooms are attractive to bees and some butterflies, and also make excellent, long-lasting cut flowers.
