I planted these in a container in the spring -- it is August now, and they have just been beautiful all summer, continuing to get taller and bushier with time.

Angelonia are heat-loving plants that will grow most vigorously and bloom best when the heat is on. They are plants best planted in mid-spring or later, since they won't really grow until the temperatures warm up. Angelonia will tolerate wet feet and a fair amount of drought. The plants are easy care with no deadheading needed. A bit of fertilizer or some compost in a garden bed is usually all that is needed for these plants to thrive. Due to their heat-loving nature they are one of the plants that can be planted even during the heat of mid-summer.
Don't forget that Angelface are great long lasting cut flowers with a slight grape soda fragrance. Try some in a flower arrangement this year and see for yourself!
An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
Angelface® Angelonia are prized as vertical accent plants everywhere. Undoubtedly the finest Angelonia on the market today, Angelface are semi-upright with a good branching habit, have extra-large, brilliantly colored blooms, and thrive in hot, humid conditions.
