Anyone heard of Angelonia?

I bought a plant today in Aldi. It's called Angelonia and on the picture it looks like a miniature snapdragon. Has anyone heard of this as I can't find details of it anywhere. It was sold as a bedding plant.



Found this info from a seed packet Sheilar.
"Serena Mix is a tender, bushy perennial, often grown as an annual, with broadly lance-shaped leaves and upright, branching stems with white, purple and pink snapdragon type flowers throughout summer"
and - "Angelonia is also called summer snapdragon, and once you get a good look at it, you'll know why. It has salvia-like flower spires that reach a foot or 2 high, but they're studded with fascinating snapdragon-like flowers with beautiful colorations in purple, white, or pink. It's the perfect plant for adding bright color to hot, sunny spaces. This tough plant blooms all summer long with spirelike spikes of blooms. While all varieties are beautiful, keep an eye out for the sweetly scented selections.
While most gardeners treat angelonia as an annual, it is a tough perennial in Zones 9-10. Or, if you have a bright, sunny spot indoors, you can even keep it flowering all winter"
Hope these help it looks very pretty.

Champion Denise. That describes it perfectly. It looks so pretty but I chose one that was not in flower yet, instead full of buds. For 79p I thought it was a snip!!

Sounds as if you could use its seeds?

Well, if it goes to seed and the seeds grow Denise, that's an added bonus 'cos I can have clumps of it all over the place!! ;-))
