Eustoma 'Twinkle Deep Blue'

Good Qualities

Color is very dark and vivid (5); Dark attractive buds (3); Good spray and flower form; Excellent germination (90% plus, in less than 10 days), stiff stems, I liked the ‘spray’ form and the fact that the buds had nice color; Big flower, double frosted shape; Tall, appear easy to harvest; Thrips resistant; Buds added to the wonderful richness of the deep purple flowers.


I lost quite a few of these to thrips, they seemed to be particularly attractive to them; Short stem; Not as floriforous; Older blooms on stem fade to purple with slight discoloration (white splotched); Same bed in hoophouse, same plug grower as Echo and Mariachi but low quality plug and non-existent yield – I can grow ’em and my plug grower can start’em well enough – just had terrible results with’ Twinkle Deep Blue’ and ‘Cinderella Pink’ (Zone 5/6); None.


Similar to lots of purple lines; Because of the thrips damage, I didn’t market many of these but people loved the ones I did have; This lisanthas has a permanent home at Wildthang.
