Sturdy spires of lavender purple flowers.
Standing tall through the hot, dry months of summer, the Angelonia ‘Archangel’ Series are quite impressive.
More commonly known as Summer Snapdragons, their fantastic floral spires work well in gardens and pots. The bright colours in the series enables you to mix and match with spectacular results. The blooms are large, (three times the size of other varieties) and they look similar to snap dragons. They are well branched stems with a compact, uniform habit.
Grow Summer Snapdragons in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Choose a sunny position, water in to establish, then you only need bother if rainfall is low.
The flowers begin as early as late spring and will bloom on through the heat and humidity of summer right into early autumn.
Summer Snapdragons are suitable for growing in pots as well as garden beds. They will over winter in warmer climates, so can be treated as perennials. In cold climates, they are usually annuals - unless you can offer them winter protection.
