Growing Tips for Homeowners:

Torenia performs best in a location that receives sun in either the morning or afternoon, but not both. Another option is a location receiving filtered sun.  Plants receiving too little sun will often show less lush foliage while Torenia seeing complete shade may have lower bloom counts.  No deadheading is required. Torenia is a great alternative for the traditional impatiens shadier spots.
