Trial: Annual

Year Trialed: 2008

Eustoma 'Twinkle Violet'

Good Qualities

Beautiful swirled purple color (4); Easy to grow; Knock-out rich color with darker center, open blooms line up on the stem which looks great in arrangements (tiered); Prettiest cultivar! /abundant bloom production, opening all together; Early, buds attractive darker stripes.

Problems

Stems were too short (2); Moderate fade; Marginally wind damaged, stems bend with the wind and grew that way, but generally straightened out well once cut and cooled; 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.
