Today's flowers: torenia

Torenia, also known as wishbone flower, is a small, bushy annual flower grows well in hot, humid weather. There are  in the snapdragon family have pink, white and lilac-blue flowers...
When I was young, we planted a lot torenia in different colors, and we always called it "Clown Flowers" in Chinese, now I don't understand why people name such a kind of beautiful flowers as " Clown Flowers"...

I love this one but somehow they don't last very long in my garden.
Strange enough they spring back with many plantlets at every end of the year during the rainy season.
