Eustoma 'Wonderous Purple'

Good Qualities

Unique deep blue color (4) with white mid-petal banding; Most productive variety in tunnel and field trials; Stiff stems and flowers; Nice strong stems, many flowers bloomed at a single time.


The lisianthus seed did not germinate; Not pretty; No one thought it was worthwhile to have in their house; Color a muddy purple, with what looks like necrotic edges, there was a variety mix in this entry: a few single flowers of medium purple color, appearance is not acceptable; I did not like the iridescence on the outside of the flowers too dark for some customers; Small flower size and color was not accepted to my customers, not as nice as ‘Wonderous Brown’, less productive; The petals all had markings on them that made them look damaged, it wasn’t an insect problem or water but seemed, in our trial anyway, to be a characteristic of the cultivar, it made the blooms appear damaged before they were even open and that made them unappealing; Could not use a single stem as they always seemed to look like they were spent, the edges on the flowers were always brown, when the evenings became cool, the plants still bloomed, but the flowers were old and withered looking.


Grown in 30%+ shade; Will not grow again; Didn’t like this one, as the flowers were small and clustered, you had to cut the whole stem in order to try and use it which set the plant back longer before the next blossom, but as I said, I couldn’t use any of the flowers.
