Arena III Red Pelleted (F1) Lisianthus Seed
Blooms are reminiscent of an antique tea rose. Conventional seed with conventional pelleting. This seed is not NOP-compliant.
Buds are a light green with pink edging. As blooms mature, the light green turns to light pink and the edging deepens into a dark rose color. 2-3" fully-double flowers. We chose the Arena series as a later-flowering group 3 (main season) series that can be planted along with an earlier group 2 series, such as the Mariachi series, for a staggered harvest. When planted at the same time, Arenas start to bloom approximately two weeks after Mariachis. Arenas also offer some outstanding, unique color options such as Apricot, Baby Pink, and Blue Picotee. Group 3, for late spring, summer, and fall harvest. Lisianthus is also known as prairie gentian, Texas bluebell, and showy prairie gentian. Pelleted seeds. Ht. 24-36". Avg. 19,200 seeds/oz. Packet: 50 seeds.
