Answer: Those are both gorgeous flowers. Lisianthus thrives in the heat, so if the plant is healthy it should bloom in July. It is an annual, and annuals have fairly long bloom periods, especially if deadheaded. Glads can take about 2-3 months to flower. I'd suggest planting some every 10-14 days to increase your chances of having flowers when you want them. Also, you might want to try the lisianthus this year and see how they perform in your conditions. Finally, did you check with flower wholesalers, as opposed to floral shops? They usually have a wider selection. Hope this info helps!
