Lisianthus "The Blue Rose"® is rated out of 5 by 11.Rated 5 out of 5 by jetjo from Beautiful Flowers Not really blue, but a deep purple, these are stunning flowers. They stay very well for 5+ days in mixed bouquets. Next year I'll get a mix of colors and keepthe bouquets coming.Date published: 2014-09-19Rated 5 out of 5 by MelD 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 Pink Bouquet Collection and they worked just as well.Date published: 2014-07-14Rated 5 out of 5 by SilverSpoonCelebrations from Great Success! I was a little worried by some who said these didn't perform. They arrived in perfect shape and bloomed prolifically starting in Late June-July. Used them in bouquets for an August wedding. Very satisfied.Date published: 2014-02-22Rated 5 out of 5 by frode from Growing well My wife loves "blue" so I picked these up and we have them growing in a pot on our patio. First bloom this morning (July 5th) but I planted later than I probably should have. Product arrived in great shape.Date published: 2013-07-05Rated 5 out of 5 by eggplant007 from LISIANTHUS I used to buy them as cut flowers in the supermarket and was delighted to find plants a few years ago. I have the purple and white varieties and I overwinter them in the house. I cut them back in the fall. They don't do much all winter, look rather peaked but hello, when the weather gets hot they spring right back and grow like crazy. Obviously I have them in pots and they like it hot and thrive when other plants burn up. I water them everyday, twice a day when temperatures reach the 90ties. Yes they tend to flop but I stake them so they trail. This year I decided to buy some more and will mix them with sweet potato vine, should be beautiful. I also found a few seedlings sprouting up in pots 20 feet away, which makes me believe that they are easy to grow from seed.Date published: 2012-02-24Rated 4 out of 5 by CrystalBeachMom from Beautiful BUT..... They are not BLUE. They are purple. I bought these for my daughter's upcoming wedding. Her colors are blue and white. She wanted blue roses VERY expensive. We found these and thought close enough and we thought it would be a fun project for us. I have pampered these plants. They are beautiful flowers, I have staked and loosely tied them to keep them from flopping over. I have a stunning display of PURPLE rose lisianthus. Too bad they are not blue.Date published: 2009-05-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Faye from Growing recommendation I have grown these in the past, so I prepared for a large display this year. Knowing that this variety will flop over, I cut a section of fence wire with 2"x4" holes in it and bent it over so that both long sides were touching the ground and the hump in the center was 6-8" above the ground. They have easily grown through the wire and that stay nice and upright even through high wind. I planted them about 6" apart and the display is beautiful. I arrange alot of flowers and love these as they are long lasting. If length is desired, you can insert it in a flower tube. They are easy to grow, but if they decide to shrivel up, these is nothing you can do to save them, so don't let them dry out! Am entering one stem in the flower show today, and if I win, I'll pass on an image!Date published: 2007-07-18Rated 5 out of 5 by uprootedtexan from outstanding rose-type flower, easy to grow These plants arrived in beautiful condition, much better than plants I've received from other garden companies. They started blooming in late June, with big beautiful deep purple & white blooms. Many blooms on each plant, and they look exactly like roses. I have had no problem with pests or disease. The only thing that is a draw back is that the large heavy blossoms make the tall plants hang, so you need to stake the plants. They look best planted in close groups, as the plants are tall & narrow. They have bloomed from June to fall, are still in bloom now. Easy for beginners also!Date published: 2006-08-31
