Serena angelonias, one of several types of “summer snapdragons”, are well-suited to our hot and humid summers. The Serenas differ in that they are grown from seed, while many other series have to be grown from cuttings. Like all angelonias, they need full sun for best blooming, with flowers much more sparse in any shade. Grow on the dry side for best results; too much water encourages overly-lush growth often followed by rot. Ok to shear midsummer; if they have enough food they will be reblooming in a couple of weeks.
