What’s Blooming? Angelonia!



The Angelonia, resembling a miniature orchid, is a commonly called the summer snapdragon, and once you feast your eyes on it, you’ll know why.  You can see the Angelonia covered in purple flowers at The Cummer, but they also can be seen in pink and white. The Angelonia is one of the tough perennials that thrives off the heat and humidity, a perfect contender for the Jacksonville area, even in the Winter. The Angelonia contains about 30 species native to tropical and subtropical areas. The majority of the species are not known in gardening, but the newest series of Angelonia, the “Angelmist” series has won several “best of the year” awards.
