How to Sow and Plant

Lisianthus may be grown from potted plants

Planting Potted Plants in the Garden:

  • Select a location in full sun with good rich moist organic, well-drained soil.
  • Prepare the bed by turning the soil under to a depth of 6-12, inches removing any debris, and lightly raking as level as possible.
  • The addition of organic matter (leaf mold, compost, well-rotted manure) benefits all gardens and is essential in recently constructed neighborhoods.
  • Plant on a cloudy day or in late afternoon to reduce transplant shock.
  • Dig a hole for each plant, approximately 6-8 inches apart large enough to amply accommodate the root ball.
  • Unpot the plant and gently loosen the root ball with your hands to encourage good root growth.
  • Place the top of the root ball even with the level of the surrounding soil. Fill with soil to the top of the root ball. Press soil down firmly with your hand.
  • Use the plant tag as a location marker.
  • Thoroughly water and apply a light mulch layer on top of the soil (1-2 inches) to conserve water and reduce weeds.
  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating.
  • Mulches also help retain soil moisture and maintain even soil temperatures. For annuals an organic mulch of shredded leaves lends a natural look to the bed and will improve the soil as it breaks down in time. Always keep mulches off a plant’s stems to prevent possible rot.
  • Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1 inch of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It's best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
  • Until plants become established, some protection from extreme winds and direct, hot sunlight may be necessary. Good air movement is also important.
  • After new growth appears, a light fertilizer may be applied. Keep granular fertilizers away from the plant crown and foliage to avoid burn injury. Use low rates of a slow release fertilizer, as higher rates may encourage root rots.
  • Remove spent flower spikes to encourage flowering and prevent seed development. Pinching the growing tips of plants can encourage bushiness.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
  • Lisianthus is grown primarily for its stunning, long-lasting cut flowers that look like roses.
  • The shorter cultivars are attractive in containers.
  • All types may be used in borders or as edgings, as long as they are spaced closely together.
  • Plants are resistant to heat and humidity.
  • Protect taller varieties from the wind.
  • Pinching can encourage bushier growth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lisianthus, there's nothing like it! These flowers are a joy and a miracle. As my cousin promised, they grow well. You keep cutting them to fill your vases, and they keep coming back! A great looking flower in the garden and in the home as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bouquets Lisianthus is hard to start from seed so I like to purchase plants. Last year none of the local retailers sold lisianthus, so this year I purchased my plants from Burpee's. Because of the weather the plants where shipped late and did not get planted until around Memorial Day. The plants arrived very health and have been blooming beautifully since July even through an extremely warm dry summer. Several people, including a gentleman that participates in the local garden walk, wanted to know what kind of flower they were and where to get them. I hope Burpee's continues to have lisianthus plants. I am very satisfied with the ordering, delivery, health, and beautiful flowers of these plants. It is the middle of October and I picked the flowers for the bouquet in the attached picture before the frost could get them.
