Torenia - Catalina - Midnight Blue
I let my PETALS do the talking.
Flowers start blooming early and keep going til late fall,then add a mounding/trailing habit and unique, yellow-throated blooms. The result is a
new series that fills hanging baskets and containers with masses of color, and
it's wonderful as a groundcover in shady areas.
