Pictures of the Day

Angelonias are not well-known outside of gardening enthusiasts.  But that could change, as the summer heat continues to grip most of the U.S.  Angelonias (Angelonia angustifolia) – also called summer snapdragons – are a hardy flowering plant that can survive the hottest temperatures.  In fact, they seem to crave the sun.  The stalks of these annuals boast a spiky, upright posture and can reach heights of 2 feet; they produce purple, pink or white blooms and have a smell akin to apples.  They’re native to México and the West Indies and can be planted in almost any type of soil, including clay.  Photos courtesy of Ball Horticultural Company.
