Propagation of Angelonia ‘Archangel Dark Rose’ can also be done through cuttings. Take a 10-15 centimeters (4-6 inches) long stem cutting from a healthy plant. Remove the lower leaves from the cutting and dip the end in the rooting hormone to promote root development. Plant the cutting in a well-drained potting mix and maintain soil moisture. Within 2-4 weeks, the cutting should develop roots and can be transplanted to its permanent location.

In addition to regular watering, fertilize Angelonia ‘Archangel Dark Rose’ every two weeks during the growing season to support healthy growth and blooming. Deadheading spent flowers can encourage the plant to produce new blooms. It is important to protect the plant from frost, and if you live in a cold climate, consider bringing it indoors for the fall season.
