ANGELONIA angustifolia( ANGELMIST® WHITE IMPROVED, ANGELMIST® SERIES)
Angelmist White Improved Angelonia, Narrowleaf Angelon, Summer Snapdragon
The white-flowered summer snapdragon Angelmist® White Improved is a compact, heavy-flowering, heat-loving ornamental that looks great from summer to frost.
Narrowleaf angelonia, or summer snapdragon, is an upright warm season perennial that originates from Mexico and the islands of the West Indies. The neat clump-forming plant is evergreen in frost-free zones and commonly grown as a bedding annual in areas with harsh winters.
When conditions are warm and accommodating, summer snapdragon will bloom and bloom. Angelmist® White Improved offers dense spikes of very showy, open, snapdragon-like flowers of white. These 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 snapdragon in containers, or mixed beds and borders. It pairs well with other bright showy bedding plants, like Zinnia 'Pink Profusion' and Persian shield.
