    Take flowers that start blooming early and keep on until late fall, then add a mounding/trailing habit and unique color blooms. The result is a series that fills hanging baskets and containers with masses of color, they are also wonderful as a groundcover in shady areas.

    • I have been growing the torenias for many years. I love the amount of blooms it brought to my shady gardens. This year however I've lost several, some before even planting and some a couple days after planting. They started turning black and dying. I'm guessing since I bought them from the same garden center they had a disease. After shopping at my local garden center again i noticed some of theirs doing tbe same. So sad because they were my go to summer plant, never mind the ammount of money lost.

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
    • Covered with blooms since I planted it in a container in light shade. Has looked good from day 1 with zero maintenance.

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • I have planted this in a hanging basket for the first time this year. I think it is very different and cute but I cannot get it to grow very much. I first tried a more shade setting and then moved it to a partial sun area -------still waiting for it to pick up. It does get fertilized so what can I do?

    • I would not categorize my thumb as "green," but this flower thrived in hanging baskets on my shaded deck last year, and I'm desperately hunting it down for planting this year. You can't go wrong with this gorgeous plant!
