What Should I Expect From My Angelonias?

I cut my Angelonias back in October. We experienced unusually freezing temperatures this year. Can I expect my Angelonias to rebound or should I plan to replace them?  I don’t see any sign of new growth.

It will be a hard call to say. You are already on the edge of where they can survive and the extra cold does not bode well for them. But, if they were in a sheltered location or if the roots remained unfrozen, then may come back. I would say it is wait and see, but the odds are that you will need to replace them.

My Angelonia Is All Droopy

I got my plant about a week ago. I put it outside for the sun, but it looks bad already. It looks like it needs water but that’s not it. What am I doing wrong?

I suspect this may have happened because the plant was not gradually transitioned to being outdoors in the sunshine. More information on successfully transitioning plants to outdoor life can be found in the following articles:

And, you may want to consider repotting your plant from the pot/soil it came with when you bought it. Some fresh, moist well-draining soil might do wonders for it along with a little fertilizer.

Overwintering Plants

I live on Lake Erie in Ohio. I have plants that are considered perennials in southern zones (angelonia and some grasses). Is there a way to preserve these plants through the winter?

If they are in pots you can move to a sheltered area, like a garage.

If you planted these plants in the ground it is not likely they will survive a winter.
A plant like Angelonia is hardy in zones 9 thru 11 and even covering and mulching will not be enough for the plants to survive.
Occasionally we can cheat a plants hardiness but the likelihood is slim.
