The Q&A Archives: Florist Variety Lisianthus

Question: What is the name of the tall florist variety Lisanthus? Is it the Echo series? Will it bloom from seed the first year?

Answer: There are varieties galore, too many to list here. Echo is one series (in many colors) of double-flowered Lisianthus that is used commercially but there are other double-flowered strains. Our Blue Rose is a very good double-flowered variety that is better adapted to garden conditions than the commercial strains. If sown early enough (Jan-March), Lisianthus will bloom in the first year.
