The Roseanne Green variety has everything you love about Lisianthus - they're like roses with no thorns, they are total blooming machines, they've got those pleasing, fleshy leaves - all in the most electrifying shade of chartreuse. Plant these with our Roseanne Brown Lisianthus, Chomley Farran Dianthus, and/or Purple Twist Snapdragon for a brilliant gem-toned cutting garden that will be the envy of the neighborhood.

How to Plant
Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water.
Where to Plant
Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, in well draining soil.
When to Plant
Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon. Plant outside after your average last frost in the spring.
When to Expect Blooms
Mid summer to frost.
Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick blooms to encourage more.
Lisianthus like rich well draining soil, mix in some compost before you plant.
