Eustoma 'Wonderous Light Brown'

Good Qualities

Unusual color (5), reminded us of antique lace; A great, great color; Not really brown, more pink caramel, attractive ruffled petal edges; I think that these grew very well, nice stems and good height; Petals are stiff; Very long stems and flowering for the longest period without interruption, interesting.


I’m not sure that brown is a good color for cut flowers, but it is kind of interesting looking, sort of tea stained, I can understand why it is interesting to the breeders but I’m not sure the general public is ready for it…; Single flower, would have been just wonderful as a double; Some plants not same color flower: seed mixture?; One of the last to be purchased with customers either loving or hating the flower colors, some plants produced only pink blooms; Smaller flowers, not as productive; The color is not for everyone and did not seem to have widespread appeal, the brown color made some observers think that it was past its prime and it wasn’t as adaptable to bouquets and common color arrangements as other lisianthus varieties; Designers were impressed to see a NEW lisianthus color but no one ordered it at the market customers didn’t even notice it, much less buy it; The lisianthus seed did not germinate.


We didn’t have too many seeds germinate but the ones that did, produced great flowers, I would be willing to try this one again, maybe buy in plugs and see if that will work better, time of year for us is another issue; Grown in 30%+ shade; Color is more salmon/frosty biege than brown, customers either loved it or passed
