Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ANGELONIA angustifolia 'Cart White'( CARITA™ WHITE, CARITA™ SERIES) PP16153
Carita™ White Dwarf Angelonia, Narrowleaf Angelon, Summer Snapdragon
Angelonia or summer snapdragon is a tender perennial native to Mexico and the West Indies which is often planted as an annual. The green leaves are lance-shaped and evergreen only in frost-free zones. Tall, loose spikes of tubular, two-lipped, snapdragon-like flowers appear throughout the growing season. The cultivar ‘Cart White’, sold as Carita™ White, has an upright habit and branches freely. The sturdy flower spikes rarely need staking. Flower color is a clear, pure white. Flowering subsides slightly during the hottest part of the summer, but overall, Carita™ White blooms non-stop.
Angelonia does best in sites with full sun and average, well drained soil. It is freeze sensitive but will take a few degrees of frost. It is also heat tolerant, though flower production will slow in the hottest weather. Plant in the fall and late winter in hot, frost-free areas. Angelonia is very drought tolerant once established though an occasional application of water during the driest times will enhance flowering. The flower spikes are long-lasting as cut flowers and deadheading -- removal of spent flowers -- is not required. Angelonia is beautiful in beds, containers and borders.
