Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have I am not the best gardener, I will admit.. I'm still learning. But, these arrive as well established plants and they are so easy to grow.. just plant in the sun and make sure to water! I've gotten so many compliments on them and I just love them. They are my favorite flower to plant and I hope to get some every year!

It is now the 2nd week in July & they have started flowering---WOW!!! many blooms from a single stem-- I will be ordering again!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lisianthus Balboa Blue Rim A showy, beautiful flower that has flourished in one of the hottest and wettest summers on record. It looks as good in the garden as it does in the catalog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lisianthus Balboa Blue Rim Everyone who has seen it wants it! It's beautiful & healthy, the colors are vibrant and it has a wonderful scent I can't describe! There's tons of blooms per stem too! I plan to buy tons more of this when it becomes available again, not only for myself, but for many of my friends!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Blooms These plants are beautiful. The stems grow quite long, and there are often several blooms on each stem. This makes the plant top heavy, and it tends to lay down. Best if staked. But the blooms are gorgeous and last a couple of weeks. I've ordered these for two years, and I'll order them again next year. This is something I can't find at the local nursery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lisianthus Balboa Blue Rim Always a showstopper, Balboa Blue Rim is striking and easy to grow. Nothing seems to bother it. In the four years I have had it in my border it has had no diseases or insect problems. I share my garden with deer,rabbits,and groundhogs. So far none of them seem interested in lisianthus. This year I will try it in containers,too.
