Product Description

Torenia Fournieri

Small, dark blue flowers with white throats sit atop compact, well-branching plants reaching 8″ tall.  They are heat and humidity tolerant.  These look fantastic as a border plant or in pots or window boxes, and they attract bees and hummingbirds.  Pelleted seeds for easier sowing.

Packet is 20 seeds.

Germination

Start seeds 10-12 weeks before your last average frost in a sterile, soilless mix.  Press into soil but do not cover as light is required for germination.  Kept at 70-75° F, germination is in 7-17 days.

Growing

Transplant into the garden 6″ apart after all danger of frost has passed.  Keep the plants well watered in very hot weather and/or windy weather, but be careful not to water so much they sit in water.  You can fertilize once every 2 weeks with a water-soluble fertilizer.  Wishbone flowers are pretty low-maintenance.  Deadheading is not necessary, but I usually cut all the spent flowers off at least once during the growing season, when the flowering has slowed down drastically.
