Lisianthus has a gorgeous bloom that is akin to a rose shape, and the elegant twisting stalks with buds are very pretty as well. The stalks are laden with blooms all Summer, and come in an amazing array of colors.
This Blue Picotee Lisianthus is unreal. Something about the rose-shaped Lisianthus with pure white petals outlined in a blue-ish purple is just other-worldly. Ooh and Aah.
Planting conditions: Full sun in mild climates, part shade in hot climates.
Care: Lisianthus like rich soil, and regular water. Mix in some compost before you plant. They are a bit particular, and require regular weeding, but if you give them some attention they will be worth the trouble, there's nothing else like them.
Blooms: All summer. Deadhead the blooms regularly (meaning cut the flowers for bouquets, or if the flowers die on the plant cut them off) to encourage more blooms.
Annual: While they will sometimes come back in warmer climates, Lisianthus are generally grown as an Annual since they are a bit fussy.
Ships: In the Spring as a plant in a 2.75" diameter pot.
