It is time to shine a spotlight on Lisianthus because they are definitely an underrated flower! Lisianthus are long-stemmed flowers with 2 to 6 budding blooms per flower. Their mixture of full blooms and almond-shaped buds add the perfect amount of texture and romance to any arrangement. They are also great for boutonnieres and corsages! Although these romantic flowers look delicate they’re surprisingly hardy and easy to care for. At a glance, their bell-shaped bloom and swirl of petals can easily be mistaken for a rose which makes them a great substitution for spray roses! These flowers are just so versatile, and with fall finally upon us why not pair our Dusty Rose Lisianthus Flower with our Burgundy Blush DIY Wedding Flower Pack?

Available year-round, we suggest having Lisianthus delivered 3 days before your event to allow them to bloom to their fullest capacity, though the smaller 1 or 2 blooms may not open all the way up, as this is the nature of this flower. To care for them, just follow the steps below:
- Open your box of flowers and inspect.*
- Ensure that your flower buckets are clean and disinfected.
- Fill the buckets with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water.
- Remove any flower bunch packaging material, including plastic sleeve and/or newspaper.
- Cut stems diagonally under running water with sharp scissors to desired length.
- Immediately after cutting, place the stems in the prepared buckets. Ensure that you have sufficient room in each bucket for the amount of flowers you will be storing in the bucket. Flowers need room to breathe and bloom; overstuffing buckets with too many flowers can cause damage and prevent proper blooming.
- Remove flowers from box by cutting any straps.
- Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate well. Flowers may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate.
- Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat.
- Change water every 24 hours to keep flowers fresh. Assure that your flowers have sufficient water. The flowers will drink an exceptionally large amount of water upon arrival.
* If upon first inspection you foresee a problem with your flowers, do not proceed processing them. Leave the flowers intact in the box and call us immediately at 1-877-507-6737.
Note: Exposing flowers to warm environments (outside in the shade, a warmer room, etc.) will help the flowers to bloom, and storing your flowers in a cooler environment will slow down the blooming of your flowers.
