Ravishing lavender blooms are perfect for cut flowers.
The belle of bouquets! This double rose-flowered Lisianthus, with its blithesome lavender blooms, is ravishing. The flowers are beautifully detailed: subtly ruffled blush lilac outer petals, cupping loosely clasped lavender inner petals. The multi-budded, long and strong-stemmed flowers are perfect as cuts.
Plant outside after all danger of frost in well-drained soil and full sun.
How to Grow
Once established, lisianthus plants require little care. They can tolerate drought and will bloom continuously until the first frost.
Lisianthus is grown primarily for its stunning, long-lasting cut flowers. The shorter cultivars are attractive in containers. All types can be used in borders or as edgings, as long as they are spaced closely together.
