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.

Lisianthus Pink Bouquet Collection is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lisianthus Delivered on time and in great shape, this is the 3rd year I have bought them. Slow to start this year, put them in a different spot, but all have buds or are blooming

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks nothing like the picture! Most plants are pretty pitiful; some shriveled up and died. I'll try these again next year, but will try growing them in containers rather than in the garden. Don't know if that will make a difference, but I'm not giving up. Lisianthis is a beautiful flower (in a perfect world).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These plants produced a lot of flowers! This is the second time I purchased a lisianthus collection. The first time the results were a little disappointing, but I suspected I needed to put them in a different place in my garden. This spring I planted them in full sun and they did much better! They probably started blooming about mid-summer and are still going here in mid-September (Minnesota). I loved them and plan on purchasing them again next season! I continually cut them once they started blooming, as well as deadheading spent blooms. That has helped a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Blooms! I was intimidated at the thought of growing these but my plants from Burpee arrived in perfect condition. They do bloom a little later but they are well worth the wait, you end up with florist grade flowers in your back yard. Order collections because you will regret not getting more by the time you see the blooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer Bloomer for English Cottage Style Garden I have an English Cottage style garden and these are a perfect addition. They are beautiful! Most of the flowers I grow bloom in the Spring so these are great to have blooming in the summer time. The weather here has been very hot (90 - 100 degrees) and these flowers don't mind at all (you have to water of course but they don't wilt at all from the heat). I also planted the Blue Rose Lisianthus and they worked just as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing performers Most of the plants arrived in great condition, although a few were wilted and dying. However, nearly all of them revived once I planted them, and the remaining ones made up for any losses. As other reviewers have noted, these are mid-to-late summer bloomers, so patience is required on the front end--plan to enjoy them along with your late summer/fall cutting flowers. I had them in containers and planted them quite close together. Once they started blooming, I was able to cut a lovely bouquet every couple of days. They did need staking. Regarding water habits, I accidentally forgot to drill holes in the bottom of the container I used, and didn't realize it for a long time. So the pots were not draining at all for half of the blooming season. Of course I felt like an idiot...the sogginess would have certainly killed many other types of plants, but these lisianthus seemed completely unaffected! I will order these again and take a little more care, and I bet they will do even better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow to bloom These took forever to bloom but when they finally did they were really pretty. I received lots of compliments on them. Once they got going they bloomed late into Oct.
