This plant is absolutely beautiful. I have had great success with it and it has required very little watering in our 100 degree weather this year in South Carolina. I will try to winter this one indoors because I love it so much.

The Serena™ series is the first Angelonia series that is available from seed. A more compact Angelonia, it is supposed to be an excellent plant for hot, dry, humid and even wet garden areas. Generally, 'Serena Mix' grows to about a foot tall; however, in the deep south (especially in Florida), it can grow 18 inches tall or more. The series has two-lipped, 3/4-inch, lavender, lavender-pink, white or purple blooms on narrow terminal spikes which appear from spring to early fall. Deadheading is not required. Although in most USDA Zones it is an annual, it is winter hardy to USDA Zones 9-11. It is suitable as a bedding or container plant.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Sacramento, California San Jose, California Micco, Florida New Iberia, Louisiana Cresaptown-bel Air, Maryland Averill Park, New York Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Northlake, South Carolina Copper Canyon, Texas Dallas, Texas Eagle Mountain, Texas Houston, Texas Pecan Grove, Texas
