Torenia plant in bloom
Close up of blooms and foliage on Torenia
This little plant comes up by itself every year from seeds it has dropped on the path.
I call it clown flower, as that is what it said on the original six pack. Mine are in purples and maroons.
I had found they like moist rich soil and shade.
Three voluneer plants appeared in the vegetable garden, amazing since the seeds are tiny and I haven't grown this plant in a few years. Transplanted them to a shallow bowl just before blooming. Photo taken 9/21/03.
Beautiful planted tightly together in a pot with just a few hours of morning sun.

This was a volunteer seedling that sprouted up by my padio. It was just identified on the identification forum . What a pretty little plant.
Growing in our window box. Cool, wet weather produced 2 inch flowers. Now 1 Inch.
