Mix Torenia

Kauai Mix Torenia consists of deep blue, burgundy, lemon drop, magenta, rose and white. Clown Torenia is compact and well-branched, but Kauai Torenia is even more compact and has a better branching habit.  The name Kauai automatically invokes thoughts of the tropics and that’s what this plant creates, exotic looking blooms that add a tropical look to your landscape or patio pots. Torenia are also called Wishbone Flowers.  The stamens grow up from opposite sides of the throat and arch together mimicking a chicken wishbone.
