When it grows in pots, Angelonia needs to be taken care of in cold regions. To establish a healthy plant in the pot, plant it in a well-draining soil mix and place it in a sunny or a partially shaded spot. Make sure it is shielded from heavy winds too. Water it gently and regularly to keep the soil moist. Plants in brittle winter areas additionally need to be covered with a thick layer of organic mulch in late fall, to stay warm through the winter season. Use cold-frame protection when temperatures dip below t 30sF for extended periods.
It is a herbaceous biennial plant. Also freely self-seeds under favorable growing conditions, and, as with biennial hollyhocks, can establish colonies in the garden that will persist for years as if they were perennials.
