Angelonia is a genus of about 30 species which occur from Mexico to Argentina and is classified in the Plantaginaceae. They are herbaceous plants occurring mainly in arid and semi-arid habitats. Most Angelonia species can be found in Northeastern Brazil in the Seasonally Dry Tropical Forest namely Caatinga. The flowers of Angelonia are highly specialized for pollination because they have hairs in the inner corolla, which produces oils collected by oil bee pollinators, especially of the genus Centris.
Give your angelonia plants a full day of sun to provide the energy plants need to bloom continuously. Plants that don't get at least six hours of direct sunlight will get leggy and will have sparse blooms.
Angelonia plants are tolerant of a wide variety of soils, but a soil Rich In Organic Matter will reduce watering and fertilizing chores. Plants need good drainage to prevent root rot, so if you have heavy clay consider growing angelonia in raised beds or containers.
Angelonia plants are tough and will keep on blooming through Period Of Drought Water when the top of the soil feels dry. Additional moisture is fine if the plants have good drainage.
Temperature and Humidity
Angelonia plants love hot summer weather and high humidity. They thrive in the deep South when sultry conditions dominate. Angelonia plants also fare well in the Southwest, with a little extra watering.
Fertilize your angelonia plants monthly, as they are light feeders and too much fertilizer will cause an overgrowth of foliage at the expense of flowers. You can also choose a balanced Flower Fertilizer with a timed-release mix of a 10-5-10 or 12-12-12 fertilizer at planting time, which will eliminate the need to fertilize again.
