Tubular blooms with wide-flaring lips appear from spring until fall, continuing even through hot spells. Flower colors include blue, violet, white, and purple.

This genus comprises 40 to 50 herbaceous annuals and perennials from tropical and subtropical Africa, Asia, and the Americas. They naturally inhabit forests and many exist at high altitudes. Several species are commonly grown as bedding plants, to include Torenia fournieri, and many cultivated hybrids have been bred.

The plants may be upright and bushy or spreading and typically have bright to dark green leaves, some with red-hues. Torenia flowers are variable, but most are...

The spreading plants have small bright green, coarsely toothed leaves, sometimes with red-hues. The showy tubular flowers have three lower petals, two upper petals and a distinctive...

As early as 6000 B.C. types of wheat were used by people and their grazing animals for sustenance. Over time man has repeatedly selected wheat for larger more abundant...
