Gardeners' Notes:

I have just planted a summer snapdragon, angel flower 'Serena™ Lavender Pink' (Angelonia angustifolia) transplant so I am unable to rate it at this time. 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™ Lavender Pink' grows to about a foot tall; however, in the deep south (especially in Florida), it can grow 18 inches tall or more. It has two-lipped, 3/4-inch, lavender-pink 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.

Update 5/04/09: 'Serena™ Lavender Pink' overwintered and is producing its beautiful blooms. It had some slight frost damage at the stem tips which I removed after many nights of prolonged freezing and below freezing temperatures. So it has proven to be winter hardy in Zone 8b.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Fairport, New York
Austin, Texas
Richmond, Texas
San Antonio, Texas
Salt Lake City, Utah
