Angelonias, aka summer snapdragons, look similar to antirrhinums but tolerate more heat. They’re also perennials, whereas snapdragons (antirrhinums) are annuals. Flowers come in shades of pink, purple or white and last for 10 days in a vase. Grow them in the garden or in pots in full sun. Seeds are available from Egmont Seeds.
