The Summer Wave and Summer Wave Bouquet Torenias make good gallons and combos for the semi-shady areas. The new Bouquet subseries is more compact and needs very little pinching. Plants are nice in gallons, combos or border plantings. The original Summer Waves have a more vigorous trailing habit and can be used nicely in baskets or combos.

For consumers with partial shade areas, the torenias perform well in either combos or in-the-ground beds. They have a semi-compact habit, making them good for semi-shady borders, and their unique colors really brighten up those boring areas. Since most annuals require full sun, torenias are a great option for areas with partial sun.
