    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great container plants I use these on my shady but very hot patio all summer. They flower from spring until fall and are the only plants that have donewell for me in this location.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow starter, but very hardy in the garden! Started these from seeds, and they were slow to germinate and grow as seedlings. But once they got going, they were quite vigorous and tolerated transfer to garden bed very well. These have grown strong and beautiful through dry, heat, torrential downpours, and all the other craziness of a Baltimore summer. Prolific flowers, lovely in pots too. Recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable happy shade lovers Have started these Torenia from seed on several occasions and never a regret. Once outside, they grow into a beautiful dense bushy habit and flower until frost. Have grown mine in pretty dense shade-maybe two to three hours of sun and in dense clay soil without a problem. The miniscule seeds may challenge you but the results are pleasing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular and unique blooms!! Although the plant is short, the bold, vivid and velvety blooms attract the attention of everyone who passes by, even the Hummingbirds. The intense colors appear so strong, yet velvety soft. Each time, I walk by, I simply have to touch one. The beauty of this flower is well worth the time and effort. I just wish they could last forever.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a prolific plant. I don't remember when or what container I planted this, but each year, I find this plant popping up around the terrace in different containers. Out of perennials, this one seems to be the hardiest. The delicate blooms seem like happy faces. Don't be surprised if this plant pops up somewhere else in the garden.
