Do you like pansies? Well, here's a "pansy" for the summer. It's a Torenia. They grow in partial shade very well and are a wonderful potted plant. They thrive in the heat and bloom till frost. It's not a very big plant, so you need to plant them in a large group if you want them as bedding plants. Mine stay in profuse bloom continually. I think their best use is as a filler in a pot with other plants.

I've planted the trailing torenia this year, and if I have the same results as my sister did last year, they should grow almost three feet across. Hers were so lush and thick, and I am hoping for the same in my garden. You are so right about torenia being a great summer plant.
