angelonia-landscape Angelonia have been around for a few years, but when the seed Serena Angelonia series came along, Angelonia started climbing the ladder of popularity. In the last few years Serena Angelonia have become more popular with landscapers and for good reason. Serena Angelonia is an a tough plant that looks great all summer long. Angelonia is sometimes called summer snapdragons. Picture – http://www.ballhort.com/Landscapers

Serena currently comes in 3 colors – Purple, Lavender and White. Each plant blooms with a mass of bloom spikes covered in orchid-shaped flowers. Of the three the Lavender is the weakest color and does not perform as well as the other two. The Purple is by far the best of the three. We have used all the colors in plantings here at our office and have been very pleased with the results every time we used them.

For landscapes, Serena offers a great background or center bed planting with enough height to stand up above other plants and show off. Whether planted in a monoculture planting or mixed with other plants, Serena Angelonia really stands out. If you haven’t tried Serena Angelonia, you should. You will not be disappointed.

Serena Angelonia need full sun and should be planted 12-14” apart. They grow to about 18” tall.

For 2011 there will be a new color introduced – Serena Blue Angelonia. We have some here that we are growing as a trial. As soon as it blooms we will get some pictures posted for you.

Here are some pictures of Angelonia in a landscape. These are some of our Serena Angelonia planted at the front entrance of one of our garden center customers. These pictures were taken in July if I remember correctly.
