Lovely Blue Torenia features showy powder blue tubular flowers with yellow throats and a royal blue flare along the stems from late spring to mid fall. Its small fragrant pointy leaves remain green in colour throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
Lovely Blue Torenia is an herbaceous annual with a trailing habit of growth, eventually spilling over the edges of hanging baskets and containers. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.
This plant will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and should not require much pruning, except when necessary, such as to remove dieback.

It has no significant negative characteristics.
