Use Angelonias as an annual bedding plant in borders or plant them in masses where they can make a striking display. They also grow well in pots and window boxes. They make good cut flowers, and the foliage retains its fragrance indoors.
Choose a site in full sun or light shade and set out bedding plants in spring two or three weeks after the last expected frost. Space them 12 inches apart in cool climates and 18 to 24 inches apart in warm regions. When the young plants are 6 inches tall, pinch out the tips of the main stems to encourage branching and bushiness.
The fragrant foliage smells like apples.
