Good Qualities

Appealing color (4), light tinge of green accented the pale yellow underneath; Long stems (4), nice double flowers that filled out well, I like that more than one flower bloomed at a time, plants were healthy and stayed green, not much wilt; Productive in tunnel; Vigorous, Lovely pale green double flowers that looked good with everything, long vase life; Great green, sought after by designers.


Continue to be unsuccessful in growing Eustoma and the ABC series was no exception. Although they were the first seed sown in the greenhouse they were the last to be transplanted out. Very slow to germinate and slower to make a transplantable plant. In the case of ‘Lavender’ ‘2-3 Green’ and ‘White’ seeds were pelleted. Seeds were singulated into plug trays and germinated as plugs. ‘White’ also came as fine seed and it was broadcast seeded and then transplanted. Transplanted seedlings were about 2 weeks slower to make a transplantable plant for the field beds compared to plugs; Stem strength poor: requires netting (not provided); Crooked bud stems; Did not germinate.


I should have said about all varieties of Lisianthus this year that I found very little, if any, wilt in the varieties this year – all plants were healthy and held up under the stress of the hot July dry days; Grown in 30%+ shade


Flower food.
