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!Date published: 2008-04-18Rated 5 out of 5 by LIFlowerLover from worth the wait I ordered these plants very early as I knew they would sell out. I planted them as soon as they arrived( May) here on Long Island, NY. It is now the 2nd week in July & they have started flowering---WOW!!! many blooms from a single stem-- I will be ordering again!!!Date published: 2007-07-14Rated 5 out of 5 by ctret 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!Date published: 2006-08-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Kadi 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!Date published: 2006-07-22Rated 4 out of 5 by Texan 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.Date published: 2006-07-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Soup 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.Date published: 2006-02-06
