The Saturated Tones Lisianthus Plant Collection
The saturated tones lisianthus plant collection is a variety of 24 lisianthus plants. These varieties have been selected specifically to coordinate with each other and will look amazing in any annual flower bed or cut flower garden.
All of the plants have been seeded and grown onsite in the Piscasaw Gardens Greenhouse. All plants will be seeded in February and transplanted to your tray in March. They will be ready for pick up the first two weeks of May. We will make official updates and announcements on the plants as their pickup date approaches. Orders must be submitted by March 4, 2022.
The saturated tones lisianthus plant collection consists of:
4 Plants of the ABC 3 Purple
4 Plants of the Croma Lavendar
4 Plants of the Papillon Rose Pink
4 Plants of the Arena White
4 Plants of the Croma Blue Rim
4 Plants of the Nightingale
Light: Plant your lisianthus in a spot that boasts full sun, where the plant can get at least six to eight hours of sunlight a day.
Soil: Choose a planting site with well-draining soil. The soil should be well-draining and should not remain waterlogged, as that can lead to root rot. Lisianthus plants prefer a soil PH between 6.5 and 7.0.
Water: Keep your lisianthus plants moist, but never allow them to remain soggy. The plant's soil should be allowed to dry out in between waterings, but don't let the plants themselves dry out. About 1/2 inch of rainfall/irrigation per week is fairly ideal for lisianthus.
Fertilizer: Lisianthus flowers need a constant nutrient stream to produce well-branched plants with abundant blossoms. Fertilizer is not necessary but can boost growth and production. Choose a flower fertilizer with one and a half times the amount of potassium as nitrogen and apply it according to package directions throughout the plant's growing season.
Temperature and Humidity: Lisianthus is a heat-loving plant that is native to areas where the days are relatively dry and the summer nights are warm, though they will flower more profusely if given more moisture.
