    Torenia are somewhat of a legacy in the Proven Winners spring collection. This year, one of Proven Winners most popular varieties is joined by Large Violet, a larger version of 'Blue (Violet)'. This filtered-sun lover provides superb color throughout even the hottest months of the year and does well in pots and window boxes. Like all the rest of the Summer Waves, this plant thrives in high humidity. Plant it alone, or combine it with Sutera cordata (Bacopa) or Supertunias.
