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.

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.
