Eustoma ‘Advantage Cherry Sorbet’
Year Trialed: 2008
The deeper pink color is very nice (3), although variable; Double flowers (2); Stronger stems than some cultivars, nicer than some others of similar color; Attractive large flower with ruffled petal edges, relatively early and productive, easy to grow, sturdy stems, didn’t require netting in the field.
None (2); Poor germination; The seed came late (February) and although I started it right away, the plants in the field never got to maturity, we had a very cold/late spring (up to 6 weeks lost) and this did not work in their favor, also, in the future I will only grow lisianthus in the hoop, western Washington is just too cool to attempt them in the field, wish I would have known! I worked so hard to get a crop and really wanted to see all of these beauties in full bloom, bummer!!!
‘ABC Deep Rose’, but this was nicer flower; ‘Magic Pink’.
We used only plain water.
