Good Qualities

Beautiful, double bloom (3); Productive (2); First time I’ve tried lisianthus from seed, and germination was much better than I expected; Ruffled petal edges; Very nice soft green color that is not often seen in flowers, this makes them one of a kind, the color matches the color of the leaves well; The flower is gorgeous with many buds at the top, the germination of these seeds was about one hundred percent; Nice form, adequate stem length and strength.


Too short; Not as tall as ABC varieties for me, but very nice flower, not really “lime” colored – more white with slight greenish tint; None; Many stems bent over and then started growing upwards, very undesirable in a cut flower, this could have been due to wind (it was positioned in the field where it took the brunt of the wind) or could be from being top heavy with so many blooms!; They were infected early with botrytis or whatever fungal disease I had and that really ruined them, I started spraying early with Milstop and also sprayed for thrips, etc. but the constant rain made a good weekly schedule impossible.

Similar Cultivars

‘Arena Green’.


I will definitely grow this one again; First of the trial lisianthus to bloom, first cut was on 8/10/09, next cuts of other lisianthus were not until 8/26/09 (planted in field 5/27, Zone 5); This is a beautiful flower and I would grow it again; I tend to prefer the ‘Cinderella’ to the ‘Arena Green’ because of the form of the flowers and the green was a little sharper or brighter, although I am not personally fond of green lissies, these looked very good in arrangements with rudbeckia ‘Prairie Sun’ and with some purple/lavender flowers; Cornell trial yield: cold, rainy season in field was very bad for lisianthus, but they grew well in the high tunnel, yield: Field 2 stems, tunnel 7 stems and length: Field 20 in., tunnel 24 in.


They were cut into Floralife flower food for hard water; Water.
