Locally grown Coral Peach Lisianthus is bunched 5 to 7 stems depending on the size of the stems and grower. We mostly offer double blooming varieties and there are many new exciting colors. Clean buckets, vases always use a packet of a Chrysal small package works for 4 quarts of water. Remove any leaves that extend beyond the water line, because they can rot and breed bacteria. Dissolve flower food in a vase filled with warm water and arrange your flowers in the vase. Place them in a cool spot, and keep them out of direct sunlight and away from air vents. Many of the unopened buds which show color may open fully. Smaller buds may not open but simply support the larger blossoms and accent the foliage.
Lisi is shipped with the blooms well developed and showing good color but not fully open. Grading varies but an average of 7 stems seems the be used by most growers. The newer imported varieties from Holland are bunches 5 stems. Lisianthus is generally 20 – 3o inch in stem length and great to use in bouquets and vase arrangements. We suggest order specialty colors like these with some advance notice.
