Then you might want to see if a garden center in your area has the new “Moon” series of torenias (wishbone flower) from Danziger Flower Farms. I happened upon these at the local botanical garden plant sale this weekend. These little annuals (for me) are great container plants in shade, but I never knew they came in something other than blue or purple. The Moon color mixtures are pretty neat; they remind me of viola mixes, but will stand up to summer much better, if they’re like the other torenias. I think these were introduced last year, but this is the first I’ve seen of them. Yellow Moon is shown above; there are also Magenta Moon, Rose Moon, and others. Perhaps some of you have tried these.Posted by Elizabeth Licata on May 18, 2008 at 11:35 am, in the category It's the Plants, Darling, Taking Your Gardening Dollar.
