Summer Wave™

  • Performs best under shade
  • Loves the heat of summer!
  • Flowers almost all year round

Botanical name

Torenia hybrid

Flowering

All year round in warmer climates; otherwise from early spring to late autumn.

Habit

Summer Wave® plants have a trailing habit. Unlike similar plants on the market, Summer Wave® plants are perennial, which makes Summer Wave® very unique.

Use

Ideal for use as a ground cover in a shaded part of the garden, or in hanging baskets.

Position

Summer Wave® plants really do love the heat of summer as their name suggests. Heat is one thing but light is another! Summer Wave® plants prefer filtered light to perform at their best. Exposure to filtered light will allow the flowers to reach their true size and colour. If you’re looking for a trailing plant that flowers for many months and loves the shade, then Summer Wave® is just what you need.

Care

Water adequately but not excessively. No need to prune as Summer Wave® is self-cleaning! Due to the large amount of flowers produced by Summer Wave® plants, they require a regular application of fertiliser. Use a high-nitrogen fertiliser. For plants growing in containers, apply fertiliser every two weeks; for plants growing in the ground apply fertiliser monthly.
