Eustoma ‘Twinkle Pink Improved’
Year Trialed: 2008
Rich pink color (2); Easy to grow, nice tall double pink; Attractive with dark center; Tall plants, uniform bloom time; Long, strong stems; Pink petals with dark center, earliest in trial.
Not as vigorous as some varieties; Bend and grow with wind direction, appear to be toppled over; 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!!!; Single flowers not as attractive as doubles in trial, showed rain flecking.
