Gardening Tips

Lisianthus

Also known as Texas bluebell, Lisianthus is native to the south or warm areas and found in grasslands and ditches in some western states. This plant grows as a dwarf variety of 2 inches and up to 3 feet tall varieties. Some varieties may need to be staked to keep from flopping over. Used in floral arrangements, the elegant flowers are popular in wedding bouquets and work well in pots and in the landscape.
