Trial: Annual

Year Trialed: 2007

Good Qualities

Beautiful deep blue color (3); Attractive ruffled edges of petals (3); Wonderful, single blooms with ruffled edges, making them look like doubles; I love these, I really like the large flower size.


The lisianthus seed did not germinate; Stems tended to be a bit shorter than the other varieties in trial; Not a fan of singles, or ruffles, it turns out; Less productive in field than in tunnel; Customers want double lisi; Short stems, not as vigorous as the other varieties; Small flower size not that popular, kind of interesting but I will not plant again.


All of the trial lisianthus was viewed as novelties, whereas I had full buckets of solid colors of my own lisianthus, we usually only had a few bunches of each trial, and grouped them together in one bucket, thereby reducing their visual impact. this may well have had an effect on their sales; Grown in 30%+ shade.
