The Q&A Archives: All Information About Eustoma, Conditions, Light, Etc. "florida Blue"

Question: I request difficult to find information on a flowering plant named Eustoma "Florida Blue". I have exhausted all other sources and your directory has no help to offer. I know they exist since I have two of them, but prior to final planting I'd like to know specifics from light prefernces to soil type. Thank you.

Answer: Eustoma grandiflora (Lisianthus)is commonly called Texas Bluebell because it's a native perennial there. The plant grows 18" high, with a 12" spread. Large, showy, tulip-shaped blue flowers appear summer through fall. It thrives in full sun to part shade, in average, well-draining soils.

Makes an excellent cut flower and is very easty to grow.
