There are these plants identical in every way excepting one has indigo flowers with a mauve background and the other indigo with a white back ground. The one with a mauve background are considered to be weeds and no one has them in their garden but the other one is sold in nurseries and is in great demand. The reason being the one that is called a weed just proliferates while the other needs a lot of pampering for it to stay alive. What do you think?

So what is a weed? Just a plant that people don't want! Most cultivated flowers started out as "weeds" that somebody decided to experiment with and produce new cultivars thanks to careful interbreeding and a lot of patience.

Not to be seen these days - not even at Virily!! If you look carefully that which is considered a weed is prettier

@allknowing Virily is closed to me at present - for some reason I can no longer load photos there, and that is essential on their system. I cannot even load a message on their contacts page.

Humans decide what is a weed and what is a flower, not nature, the so called weed is even prettier.

@allknowing I let some so called weeds run in my garden, I do not care if they are considered weeds.

The attitude is that which grows easily gets less value.

Man by nature love to be challenged as in propagation, hard to grow would be associated with rarer so that's how it gets it's intrinsic value.

They are both Torenia flowers. Torenias have many varieties. I have some of them in my Philippines garden. There are also some in pink and red. They are easy to care flowers. Btw, they are expensive here in Germany.

If you like the weed and it's pretty, I'd be keeping it.

I think you should change its fertilizer or soil
