Information

Lisianthus Flare F1 Series Double-Flowered Lisianthus Flare displays an outstanding multi-flower, double-flower form with high petal counts and bright strong solid colors on tall, strong stems. All flowers on top.

Native to dry areas, it is also called the 'Rose of the South' and is becoming more and more popular due to its beautiful delicate appearance with strong stems and petals. With a very long vase life expectancy it is said that it grows in the flower arrangements as the buds keep opening while in the vases. When used in bouquets or flower arrangements, it adds a touch of class and increases the perception of high end quality and elite value.
A fast series blooms uniformly within the color. It is rosetting resistant with a shorter cropping cycle when compared to other varieties. 
One stem gives more volume. All flowers open on top.

    Soil:
    PH: 6.5 to 7.2. Lisianthus prefers a high pH.
