Yoonki's Tropical Garden
Angelonia goyazensis Benth
|Angelonia goyazensis Benth. Member of Scrophulariaceae
The plants grows low on the ground, not tall. Every part of plant has fragrance. When you water them the smell comes stronger. It likes bright sun and water a lot. Grow faster at the cool place. Blooms all year round. Origin is Brazil.
You can grow from seeds, just in a few days leaves will come up.
I saw this at Petchabun province during my trip in February 2000. Also found them at Suan Luang Park, Bangkok.
The fragrance is something like that of chewing gum I think...
