ANGELONIA angustifolia( ANGELMIST® SERIES)
Angelmist Basket Angelonia, Narrowleaf Angelon, Summer Snapdragon
Members of the summer snapdragon Angelmist® series are compact, heavy-flowering, heat-loving and look great from summer to frost.
Narrowleaf angelon, or summer snapdragon, is an upright warm season perennial that originates from Mexico and the islands of the West Indies. The neat clump-forming plants are evergreen in frost-free zones and are commonly grown as bedding annuals in areas with harsh winters.
When conditions are warm and accommodating, summer snapdragon will bloom and bloom. Cultivars in the Angelmist® series offer dense spikes of very showy, open, snapdragon-like flowers that appear in shades of lavender, purple, pink and white. These flowers attract bees and are good for cutting.
This tough ornamental can take both heat and drought once established. Full sun and well-drained average soil are all that’s needed for good growth. Light fertilization will encourage vigorous bloom as will light deadheading. Enjoy summer snapdragons in containers, or mixed beds and borders. They pair well with any other showy floriferous bedding plants.
