I planted a bed of torenia (wishbone flower) this year, and they grew remarkably well.

The abundance of blooms was amazing, they just kept blooming all summer long, and have only recently begun to slow down.

Which brings me to my question: what do I need to do to prepare the plants for winter? Should I cut them off at the ground and cover with mulch? Will they come back next spring?

Hi Sharky, I've never grown wishbone flowers, but all of my books I have here have them listed as annuals. It says the plants sometimes self sow......a good frost would take them out.
