Torenia commonly called Wishbone Flower originated in southern and western Asia.
Torenia is another annual grown from seeds. If you are looking for something bright and cheery then Torenia is what you should choose.
Torenia is a prolific bloomer that starts flowering early in the season. Its short upright tubular flowers have two lips. The lower lip is divided into three lobes often with a yellow dot in the white centre. It comes in colours of pink, blue, purple and rose.
Torenia does best in containers. Plant in rich soil and keep moist in a semi-shaded area.
Torenia drops seeds and often young seedlings pop up. Enjoy them while they last. Every year my Torenia pops up so that I am never out of them. I found the dark blue to be the strongest. They have adapted well to the Caribbean and North America.
Until next week, Happy Gardening.
