Of course, the patented cultivar 'angelmist' may not be commercially propagated without a propagation license from the patent holder.

Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - with their short stature and long lasting colorful blooms, angelonias are perfect as summer bedding plants. For a massed effect, space plants 9-12 in (23-30. 5 cm) apart. They also make great container plants for porch planters and window boxes. In zones 9-11 use as flowering edging in front of perennial beds and borders. They're good for cut flowers too
