Catalina Grape-o-licious Torenia is a long-blooming annual that does great in shade or sun. It gets up to 12 inches tall and wide. It is loaded with white, trumpet-shaped flowers with purple centers and clean green leaves in spring and summer.
Hummingbirds regularly visit torenia but deer do not. Grape-o-licious Torenia joins four other colors in the Catalina family. Torenia is heat tolerant. With its mounding form, it fills the role of filler in a container with maybe just a graceful spill over the edge. It also does well in the ground.
Catalina® Grape-o-Licious Wishbone Flower Care
Grow torenia in full sun to shade. Sometimes the leaves turn dark green in sunnier locations. A very low maintenance plant, no deadheading (snipping off dead flowers) is necessary.
It’s not too picky on soil requirements. Although heat tolerant, it does best when watered during dry spells. Fertilize as an annual in a pot or in the ground, according to label directions.
Catalina® Grape-o-Licious Wishbone Flower Spacing
Plant three in a 10- or 12-inch wide hanging basket or other container, adding something a bit taller in the center, such as a Lanai verbena for a sunny location or an impatiens in shade. In the ground, plant about 8 inches apart.
