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, Rose Bouquet Collection is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cut flower These are great performers as cut flowers. I planted these in spring in my cutting garden and am still cutting flowers in September. They have long stems (sometimes need to be staked) and a super long vase life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding beauty all summer long. So happy to have the beautiful color in our garden. The cut flower lasts so long as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful flowers We received these plants in spring and now they are in full bloom. Absolutely gorgeous. Standing up to the CA heat. All of the plants (18) were in great condition upon arrival. Unfortunately none of the Lisianthus are available now, hope for next spring. PLEASE bring them back! Pricey, but well worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money! I bought this for cut flowers based on the height description, i.e., 30-40 inches. These plants are barely 12, maybe 15 inches and are not useful for cut flowers. The "green" isn't really any different in color than the cream/white color. The purple is a lovely color. Overpriced and disappointing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Beautiful Flowers!!! I ordered these flowers because we named our dog Lisianthus (Lisie for short)... I couldn't decide on a color, so I purchased this trio and I am so glad I did! They actually began blooming 3 days before he first birthday in July and I can't even begin to describe how beautiful they are! The green does look similar to the yellow, but in the correct light, you can definitely tell they are green. They were incredibly easy to care for and bloomed for quite some time. I couldn't have been happier and I would definitely purchase these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing beauties I ordered these ladies last summer. And I am finding them to my surprise that they are coming back!!! So much for being an annual, I guess all the bitter cold didn't kill them off. I'm really thrilled. I'm ordering more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality I ordered lisianthus from Burpee last year, and I absolutely loved them. All of them were prolific bloomers, and looked great all summer long. I ordered the Rose Bouquet Collection this year, and am happy to report that they showed up on my doorstep yesterday afternoon. I can't begin to describe what great condition the plants were in when they arrived. The soil was moist, all of the stems and leaves were intact, and the plants showed no signs of stress. They have begun to acclimate well. I am looking forward to another year of beautiful lisies! Thank you, Burpee!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Blooms Definitely florist quality flowers that last a REAL long time when cut. The pale green is a real knockout. I wish it was offered separately.
