Q. You have written about Angelonia this year. What do you find so desirable about it? The flowers seem to fade quickly and it needs lots of water.

A. Angelonia is a Texas Superstar plant recommended by the Texas Agrilife and cooperating nurseries. I am growing it for the first time this year. You are right that it does seem to take a while for it to become established, so needs frequent irrigation. The blooms also seem to come and go, at least in the 100 degree Fahrenheit weather we have experienced in 2011. Among its selling points are that it seems that it will bloom in sun and shade, and it is deer-proof.

Q. We did not get a chance to plant the iris rhizomes that we thinned from our bed last fall. They look a little dried out. Will they still be okay? Should we plant them now or this fall?

A. Iris rhizomes are very tough. They can be planted now or you can wait until the fall. Plant them in full sun. The top of the rhizome should be planted even with the top of the soil.
