Angelonia is a must have for my flower beds. Even with the weird summer we have had - cool rainy June, hot July and August then dry, they are still blooming non-stop and very healthy looking. These are the first plants I buy every Summer - they never fail me - I just love them.

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.
Theres nothing like a good haircut to make a girl feel like a million bucks. Its so true it should be Newtons Fourth Law. But I have no idea why it feels twice as thick a week later. For example, cut some of my 18-24 inch tall upright stems covered with snapdragon-y blue-purplish flowers and guess what? In a few days Ill look every bit as bushy as before. So sharpen up those pruners, baby.

So sharpen up those pruners, baby. I look terrific in a vase. You won't see me going all floppy and falling apart in fifteen minutes, no way. I'll keep my looks for 10 days+. Change the water every other day and it could be 10++.
Container, bed, planter or border: I'll stay my usual fabulous self even in the South and Midwest's notorious heat and humidity. By August when most plants look deep fried, I look fresh as an, um, Angelonia. That's because I'm a Proven Winners hybrid - a much improved version of an old-fashioned Angelonia (a.k.a. summer snapdragon). Drought tolerant. Full sun. Annual except in zones 10 - 11. No deadheading. Beautiful, tough and vigorous from spring until the first hard frost. Sounds like a Fifth Law to me.

Great plant. The only one that survived hot Phoenix summer. Will definitely buy again.Angela3 years ago
Angelonia is an absolute must-have for my flower garden. They bloom non-stop ALL summer. NO deadheading, NO pests, NO diseases, NO staking, just a beautiful plant with the bonus of a sweet light scent.MariannaOhioUnited States4 years ago
It is November and it has been in full bloom since May. It always has looked great. Not a 5 because the stems break off too easily - my only pruning has been to cut off broken stems. Frost comes now so I expect this is the end of the seasonRussell StudebakerCaliforniaUnited States4 years ago
I love snapdragons and this is such a pleasant surprise. I bought it last year and this. I went to my daughter's after she had purched her flowers for the season, and there was Angleface. She also found it last year and bought again this year.Mary PlatterOhioUnited States4 years ago
