Trial: Annual

Years Trialed: 2002

Good Qualities

Good light pink (3); Many flowers; Excellent germination (95%, 15 days), strong stiff stems, and uniform color, pretty vigorous; Blooms are about half to one third the size of more traditional lisianthus, which would lend themselves well to bouquets, gorgeous range of color on a single stem, from an ivory, light colored pink to rose color, nice tall stems.

Problems

Basal branching can be messy at harvest and result in wasted stems; Very small flowers, thin stems – ugly flowers; Our flower buds were small. Florist were not impressed with the spray type and really had to educate them on the new cultivar.

Comments

Editor note: See the Postharvest Report in this issue for vase life and handling information. Small flower; These are a good, easy to grow lisianthus, they were a little more difficult for me to market because they are not as showy as the doubles or even the larger flowered singles.
