Eustoma ‘Cadence Yellow’

Eustoma 'Cadence Yellow'

Trial: Annual

Year Trialed: 2008

Good Qualities:

Small single light yellow flower (2); Spray type; Blooms quickly, green center, single blooms throughout stem in nice formation; Half of stem blooms at once making for a very attractive cut, very upright habit; Easy to grow.


Not as showy as other lisianthus cultivars; Holds onto spent blooms too long. They turn brown and are unsightly; 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!!!; Shortest stems in the trial; Single flowers not as attractive as doubles in trial.

Similar Cultivars:

None listed by respondents.


First to bloom of all lisianthus; Eleven days later than Echo Champagne, the earliest in the trial.
