A True Beauty: ‘Celeb 2 Madonna’ Lisianthus

Over the years, I’ve managed to grow quite a few varieties of lisianthus in my small backyard. I always struggle to grow lisianthus, as keeping them happy and weed-free can be difficult for me. Still, I usually have pretty good results, provided I am able to start the plants early enough.

This year, I grew ‘Celeb 2 Madonna’ lisianthus for the first time. The ‘Celeb 2’ series of lisanthus is from Japan. I had originally made the order for plugs after hearing raving reviews about the plant’s large, fluffy blooms

I was not disappointed! In fact, ‘Celeb 2 Madonna’ lisianthus are easily ranked among the best varieties that I’ve ever grown!

The first thing that I noticed about my own plants were the huge blooms and ruffled appearance. No matter what stage of development, the lisianthus gave a full appearance to bouquets and vases.

Ranging from very light pink to shades of pink-purple, this variety produces an insanely gorgeous array of colors.

  1. Could you please tell me where you purchase lisianthus plugs? I’m a first-year flower farmer and would really love to grow these.

    1. vicky, i would start by joining lisi growing groups in fb and/or looking for videos on youtube. you can grow seeds—they’re tiny and will take months to do anything—but they’re sooo worth it & way less expensive than plugs.
      if you’re like me, and you want just a guaranteed flat to show up at your door with all uniform growth, i HIGHLY recommend registering an account with ball/colorlink. I’ve been using their ordering system “WebTrack” for a few years now, and it’s very simple, easy to learn…etc. you do need to be a registered business with an EIN. unless you’re able to find small growers who offer lisi flats through the winter to supplement extra $, all the big name companies will require you to have an EIN. good luck!

  2. so i am growing these this season. several colors and i am so excited!! do you happen to know what group they are? thank you!
