Lisianthus, White Rose is rated out of 5 by 4.Rated 5 out of 5 by babice2 from changing my earlier review I posted earlier that I was disappointed in the white lisianthus plants I received. I emailed back and forth with Burpee's nursery and they made good on the ones that didn't survive. Also, though, I want you to know that the 6 that did were gorgeous and bounced back very nicely. They bloomed profusely all summer and into the fall with a nice smell. They are stark white with nice, glossy green leaves...this is just what I was looking for. And they are actually still alive here in November. I'm going to attempt to keep them alive in my garage this winter. I loved them so much that I just ordered 2 dozen more of the white and am trying 2 dozen of the blue. I like the lisianthus because it thrived in the heat and drought we had here in the Midwest this summer. I am planning to put them in pots in full sun in places that I usually have problems needing to water daily. I'm sure they'll thrive and be beautiful for me there.Date published: 2012-11-26Rated 1 out of 5 by babice from really disappointed Ordered this "White Rose Lisianthus" with high hopes of receiving beautiful plants that I could pot and grow this summer for the "thriller" smell and beauty advertised here. They were in bad shape when I received them. Wilted and looking like they had already rosetted. Rather small as well. I planted them any way hoping....hoping... Planted them within days of receiving them in potting media mixed with some perlite along with fertilizer. Have kept them watered but not wet....about a month later, half of them have died. The rest of them still look puny and wilted. I'm a hopeful gardener and will keep them in there as long as I can stand it. I just expected to receive something better than this from a quality company.Date published: 2012-06-05Rated 1 out of 5 by CTGardener2 from Not worth it Ordered 6 plants for planting in 2009. Dissapointing by legginess of plants and few blooms. Instead of being bushy and having many blooms like in the photo, my plants were leggy and only produced a couple of blooms each all summer. They were in a container with Miracle Grow Potted soil, fertilized monthly, and well watered in full sun. Would not recommend.Date published: 2010-01-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Blue and White Rose Lisianthus I ordered a mix of blue and white rose last year, 48 each. They were the healthiest plants I've ever received via mail order. I can't recall when I planted them probably early May sometime (I live in Omaha NE). Their performance was astounding. They grew very well in full sunlight even during the hottest parts of summer. And they flowered like CRAZY. I've never seen plants put out so many large heavy flowers, often four or five per plant. They bloomed incredibly prolifically all the way into late fall. Very beautiful flowers too, very rose-like as advertised. I got tons of compliments on them, they were by far the stand-out success in my garden. My only problem was that the blue-flowering plants, which grew somewhat taller, weren't strong enough to hold up the masses of flowers and would droop over sometimes. At any rate this year I am ordering many more.Date published: 2007-01-29
