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.

A great series for Proven Winners, these Angelonias have been bred for flower performance as well as a great upright branching growth habit. Large flower size and garden performance make these an exciting addition to our summer flowering collection. Angelonias in containers make full blooming specimen plants that are great for the patio and yard. Planted in the landscape, Angelonias will WOW gardeners with their beautiful shape and structure and will flower well into the fall. The flower stems also are great for making vase arrangements providing enjoyment for 10 days or more.

AngelFace Angelonia is one of Dr. Rick Schoellhorn's top 10 favorites for Florida.
Angelonia are often called Summer snapdragons for good reason as they love the heat and will flower most all summer, though they often take a break in the heat if high summer. No deadheading required, huge blooms of white, pink and blue tones. Easy and rewarding, just keep up
regular fertilizing and watering.

People, Places and Plants Magazine listed Angelface Deep Violet as one of the 12 Hot Annuals for 2008.

Better Homes and Gardens listed Catalina White Linen as one of 20 Top New Annuals (& Warm-Climate Perennials) of 2008.

  • I purchased five angelonias and only two are still alive. The tag said they can be a perennial in my zone. The angelface blue (pot/sun) is growing new stocks and the purple (ground/shade) is alive, but not growing. Possibly due to the fact that it gets a lot of shade.

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.

  • Great plant. It survived the worst summer on record here in Arkansas. Along with temps above 100degrees for about a month we also had no rain for about 2 months. I watered and it hung on and now with cooler temps it's a beautiful fall plant. The colors are bright and flowers last a long time. Will definitely buy this plant again next year.

  • I get very intense afternoon sun in this area. I bought 2 plants thinking they probably wouldn't survive. They are magnificent! They have filled and area about 3' by 2' and have bloomed constantly. I planted them with blue balloon flowers; they really complemented each other early and then the angeleonia took over.
