Prairie Gentian Info

Prairie gentian is commonly known as Lisianthus. They are the natives of warmer regions of the United States, Caribbean, Mexico and northern South America. They can be single petal or double petal. Prairie gentian is fairly new to the world of horticulture as it had introduced into the market during the 1980s.

The colors which can be found are all shaded of pink, purple, white and blue.
These flowers tend to attract bees, and other small insects, butterflies and birds as well.

The plant grows better in full sunlight to partial shade. It needs water consistently, but should be kept in mind not to over water. These plants can be grown inside a very well lit and bright room. Prairie gentian requires a slightly moist soil with a proper drainage. This plant prefers a neutral to slightly alkaline soil and it does poorly in acidic soils.

Their vase life can be more than three weeks. They look beautiful with their delicate satin features.
Prairie gentian may also be known as Texas bluebell and should not be confused with Texas blue bonnet.
