Gardeners' Notes:

This plant did wonderfully last summer. We had triple digit heat almost every day for 2 months, and it bloomed through it all and looked gorgeous. I want to plant more this year, but I can't find the plant anywhere now. The three plants I had bought did not make it through the winter, or what is technically winter here, even though it was pretty warm.

I was actually looking for information on the 'Angelmist' because it has performed with such unstinting grace without causing me any extra work. Since I only bought one plant to see how it adapted, I'm kicking myself for this cautious attitude. Temperatures here have been in the high 90's for a while now, very little rain, (we are down 9" for the year and praying for some moisture), but the 'Angelmist Purple Imperial' looks fresh and lovely each day.

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

Bears clear white flowers.

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.
