Growing lisianthus has always been a major source of frustration for me. But this year, I was finally able to make some progress in a good direction. This year, I grew two types of lisianthus in the Voyage 2 series. This Voyage 2 Light Apricot is especially beautiful.
Though each of the flowers is the same general shade of apricot, they do vary quite a bit. I was really surprised to see that these flowers have some rather unique color splashing. The petals almost have a purple/brown water soaked appearance. It’s very obvious up close, but definitely creates some very lovely dimension when seen from a distance.
I always have to be careful with these varieties because a lot of people don’t like them. When my mom first saw them, she thought that the were bug damaged. The same is true for a lot of the people at the farmer’s market. However, my local florist absolutely fell in love with them! Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.
Have you grown lisianthus before? I would love to hear about it in the comments below!
