Locally grown purple lisianthus is bunched 5-7 stems depending on the size of the stems and the grower. We mostly offer double blooming varieties and there are many new exciting colors. Cut the flowers upon arrival and hold flowers at room temperature for 1-2 hours (or longer if flowers are limp or exhibiting bent neck) if you want them to open. Remember to always use clean buckets and vases. Use a packet of the provided Chrysal flower food in a vase of warm water. In addition, remove any leaves that are in the water because they can rot and breed bacteria. Place them in a cool spot, and keep them out of direct sunlight and away from air vents. Lisianthus is shipped with the blooms well developed (but not fully open). The newer imported varieties from Holland are sold in 5 stem bunches. Lisianthus is generally 20-30″ in stem length and great to use in bouquets and vase arrangements.
