The bluewings or wishbone flower, Torenia fournieri, is an annual Linderniaceae plant with blue, white, or pink flowers with yellow markings. It's usually grown as a landscape annual, reaching a height of 12–15 inches.
- In partial to full shade, Torenia Moon Indigo thrives. Torenia's do not like to dry out completely, so give them plenty of water just before the soil dries up. More watering may be required during hot and dry periods, while less watering may be required during rainy and cool periods. When watering, be careful not to spill water on the foliage or blossoms, as this might cause illnesses.
- Fertilize once or twice a month with a liquid fertilizer, or add a slow-release fertilizer to the soil as directed.
- Deadheading, or the removal of wasted blooms, is usually not necessary with Torenia Moon Indigo. If you see your plants are becoming lanky or stretched out, simply clip the blooms and leaves back, and they will branch out and rebloom. Make sure to fertilize on a regular basis.
