The cascading habit of this new Angelface® Angelonia is perfectly suited for hanging baskets and combinations. The plants have height on the top of the pot, but then cascade over the edge as well. In containers it will function as both a filler and spiller. Their heat tolerance makes them an excellent choice for gardeners who live in climates with hot summers.Fragrant FoliageContinuous Bloom or RebloomerLong BloomingHeat TolerantDeadheading Not NecessaryDrought TolerantResists:Deer

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® Cascade Blue Angelonia hybrid 'ANCASBLU' USPPAF, Can PBRAF
