ANGELONIA 'Anstern'( ANGELFACE® BLUE BICOLOR, ANGELFACE® SERIES) PP13143
Angelface Blue Bicolor Angelonia, Narrowleaf Angelon, Summer Snapdragon
Angelonia ‘Angelface’ is a hybrid summer snapdragon. It is a tender perennial which is often planted as an annual. The dark green, grape-scented leaves are lance-shaped and evergreen only in frost-free zones. Tall spikes of tubular, two-lipped, snapdragon-like flowers appear throughout the growing season. The cultivar ‘Angelface Blue Bicolor’ branches freely, has very sturdy flower spikes which rarely need staking and large flowers. The color of the flower is white with lavender-blue splashes on the petals and lips and a lavender-blue spotted throat.
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.
