Lisianthus, botanically known as Eustoma grandiflorum is a biennial or short-lived perennial depending on climate. Foliage is gray-green, mounding and sends up 1 1/2 foot stems with showy 2 to 3 inch tulip-shaped flowers, in pink, white or mauve. Requires good garden soil, well drained, occasional fertilizing.
