Violet

This is a fun weekly meme, under the direction of Jenny Matlock.  This week the theme is violet, the end of a short run of color themes.  Come and join HERE.








ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
This is angelonia.  It is also called summer snapdragon.  A sun lover, it will grow 1-2 feet tall.  It is a perennial in zones 9 & 10.  The following link said it can be grown indoors in a sunny location, so I will bring this plant inside for the winter and see what it does.  I have a plant conservatory and may plant it in that.  I have a couple of these plants in containers by my front door.
