The Sapphire series of Lisianthus are wonderful plants with a compact shape and lots of large flowers all summer, from June/July to the first frost. Lisianthus ‘Sapphire Blue’ is a single-flowered dark blue dwarf form. The plants grow about 20cm in height, with a good branched and rounded shape. They do well as edging, pot plants and houseplants. They are excellent cut flowers, lasting at least two weeks in a vase.
Lisianthus grows best in sun to part shade and in neutral to alkaline well-drained soils. They are frost-tender and can be grown as annuals (start sowing early) or as perennials kept over winter in a frost-free greenhouse or indoors as a good houseplant.
