Wordless Wednesday—Angelonia In The Meditation Circle

I used this angelonia in my vase on Monday and several readers were unfamiliar with it. An annual here, it blooms all summer until first frost without deadheading.

    It’s a wonderful plant. I’d never had great luck with Angelonia until I planted one in a half barrels in my front garden. It apparently gets just the right amount of light and water there so I expect I’ll be adding more 😉

    That’s a lovely colour. It must love your conditions, because, compared to the small plants that we managed to grow a couple of years back, they are massive and incredibly prolific.

      I hadn’t grown this particular kind before. It was from mail-order and it actually didn’t do as well as expected until the weather got cooler in September. I usually buy them from a local nursery and and they take off right away.

    It’s interesting to see it in context, Susie. For some reason I was expecting it to be blue which is why I was puzzled about your vase – but perhaps I was thinking of something different altogether! Looks to be a useful annual, flowering for so long

        Plants of Distinction have seeds of a pretty pink one called Serenita Rose, which they suggest is ideal for a patio pot – not sure if that implies it is best for them not to be grown in the ground?
