A "summer snapdragon" for hot, sunny spots
Hot, sunny and a bit dry? Those are perfect conditions for angelonia, a summer garden favorite.
Angelonia is known as the “summer snapdragon” because its blooms are spiky and a bit tubular, perfect for attracting hummingbirds and butterflies. But unlike snapdragons, angelonia thrives in hot, sunny weather.
Angelonia is spectacular in containers, especially mixed in as a thriller or a filler. For landscaping projects, try mass planting angelonia for an amazing display. As the typical growth habit is upright, space most angelonia plants about 10-12” apart. Once plants are established, let soil dry a bit between waterings.
Multiple angelonia varieties are available. Check individual plant tags for height and growth habit to find the perfect angelonia for your needs.
