I viewed the most magnificent little flower (torenia) in a public garden in Georgia this summer. I'd never heard of them before. Is it an annual or perennial? Are they best grown from seed or started as small plants? Do they grown in my region?

Torenia fournieri, also called the 'wishbone flower' is an annual that blooms all summer and sometimes into the fall in your area of Western Washington. It likes sun to partial shade and lots of water. It is best grown from seed and started indoors in pots, then transplanted into the garden after last frost. Torenia is available in blue with deep blue markings and bright yellow throats or in white. It's a lovely flower for borders or window boxes.
