Raspberry Serenita Angelonia Plants
Compact and Colorful!
You just can't beat Angelonia (otherwise known as Summer Snapdragon) for nonstop blooms in the face of heat, humidity, and even drought. This annual knows no limits -- and the flowers just keep coming, from earliest summer in most climates right into autumn. Deer, rabbits, and other nibbling creatures keep their distance, butterflies flock to pay their respects, and the full, dense habit of this upright plant fills in available space beautifully. Even a small planting looks as though you hand-tend it on a daily basis, whereas all it needs is regular water and the occasional feeding!
Serenita is more compact than Serena by about 3 inches, and the blooms seem both larger and closer together, presenting a more solid spike of rich color. Expect this annual to reach only 6 to 10 inches high in bloom, and to spread 4 to 6 inches wide. Plant it densely in your best containers and watch it take off blooming . . . and continue week after week, month after month!
Tolerant of short periods of drought, Serenita is the perfect patio plant for busy folks who can't get out to water every day. It always looks its best, and that's a pretty high standard of beauty! You're going to fall in love with this one.
