Great plant! Perfect for our sometimes brutal summer heat. Required very little care and bloomed nonstop. Will plant again this year.

This is the most striking of the angelonias. This plant is a staple for filling beds in the hot, humid gulf coast. Depending on the winter--it can be perennial. All angelonias are extremely easy to propogate from cuttings.

I love this plant. It is true our growing season is short, but from the time I planted it until frost it bloomed it's little heart out. Many people also commented on what a pretty plant it is. I grow most of my flowers from seed, but this is one I seek out every year.

The AngelMist series is covered by Plant Breeders Rights/Plant Patents in a number of countries including USA, Canada and the UK.

In my opinion this is the most striking of all the AngelMist series of Angelonias. It has white flowers with a deep purple stripe on each petal.

Loves a well-drained soil in full sun. While it should be well watered it is best to allow them to dry out between each watering (just not for too long!). You may get a second flowering flush if you cut them back after an early flush and there is enough time left in the season.

They make good container plants as well as bedding and are often grown as annuals, unless you have space to bring them indoors when frost arrives.
