|Serena Angelonia is not a butterfly plant but it does resemble one. It is called the summer snapdragon because the little flowers look like tiny snapdragons and because it flowers all summer long. You can cut or pinch out the faded flower stalks and cut the entire plant back a little to make it more bushy and to encourage more blooms. Best wishes with your garden!
