This filtered-sun lover provides superb color throughout even the hottest months of the year and does well in pots and window boxes. Like all the rest of the Summer Waves, this plant thrives in high humidity. Plant it alone, or combine it with Sutera cordata (Bacopa) or Supertunias.

Here is feedback from a customer in Leroy, Kansas:

"I purchased some flowers...and had great results. My favorite was The 'Summer Wave' Large Violet, Torenia Hybrid. I have never had four little plants grow like that for me before. The huge planter on my porch had about a 3-4 foot diameter with beautiful purple blooms all Summer long. It looked like a vase of lovely thick flowers you would expect to see in a Park or a Zoo. It was absolutely the most beautiful plants I have ever grown personally in all my many years of gardening. Thank you so much for the healthy, wonderful plants. They were so beautiful from May - September. I had a good run." - BG McCarter
