Description for Torenia (Purple)

Although sometimes classified as a warm weather annual, this species of Torenia is not terribly fond of hot and humid summer weather. Most varieties have purplish-blue flowers with a yellow throat. True to its name, Torenia displays two short wishbone-shaped curved stamens.

Annual best grown in consistently moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Although sometimes classified as a warm weather annual, this species ofTorenia is not terribly fond of hot and humid summer weather.

As long as properly sited and watered, it will generally bloom from early/mid summer to frost. Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost date or sow seed directly in the garden just before last frost date. Plants are often available from nurseries in cell/six packs. Set out seedlings or purchased plants 1-2 weeks after last frost date. Young plants may be pinched to promote compact, bushier growth. Container plants may be brought indoors for winter bloom.
