Our Rio Lisianthus farm is located on the western coast of Costa Rica, where the high temperature and bright light give us the unique ability to let the blooms fully mature within the greenhouse. This results in a much more desirable cut stage and vase life.
Rio Lisianthus will arrive fully bloomed in an open-cut stage. A completely open Lisianthus bloom offers a much longer vase life than an immature bloom. While this is different from what you might normally expect, the open cut allows your customer to enjoy their flowers longer, ten days in-home on average.
As it arrives fully bloomed, Rio Lisianthus is ready to display right out of the box; customers can see their flowers precisely as they’ll experience them at home.
Lisianthus are long-lasting bell-shaped flowers with delicate petals and oval leaves. They have long been grown as a cut flower, prized for their striking, rose-like beauty and exceptional vase life. They come in many colors, from delicate whites and pinks to greens and deep purples. Rio specializes in offering Super Select grade.
