Eustoma 'Arena Pink'

Good Qualities

Nice light pink with dark yellow centers (4); Attractive double flowers with ruffled edges (3); Sturdy stems (3); Produced multiple usable stems/plant, prolific bud production, withstood windy conditions well; Uniform growth habit, fully double flowers; Tall; Our first attempt at growing lisianthus was wildly successful! Lovely buds, long vase life, it was as easy to grow as celosia, florists love it; Easy to grow, didn’t require netting in the field.

Problems

None; Wimpy terminal stems; Color seems a little washed out; The seed came late (February) and although I started it right away, the plants in the field never got to maturity, we had a very cold/late spring (up to 6 weeks lost) and this did not work in their favor, also, in the future I will only grow lisianthus in the hoop, western Washington is just too cool to attempt them in the field, wish I would have known! I worked so hard to get a crop and really wanted to see all of these beauties in full bloom, bummer!!!; Later to bloom than rest of Arena series by a couple of weeks.

Similar Cultivars

‘Echo Pink’, ‘Twinkle Pink Exp.’, ‘Cinderella Pink’.

Comments

Twelve days later than ‘Echo Champagne’, the earliest in the trial; Planted two seeds per cell in a 125 plug tray in early February, started cutting stems in late September, flower quality improved after the bed was covered with a plastic tunnel for frost protection, still producing Oct. 15.

Postharvest

We used only plain water.
