Eustoma ‘Vulcan Yellow’
Year Trialed: 2008
Very strong stems (3); Creamy yellow single with dark yellow center, good yellow color; Beautiful, petite single flower; Nice flowers; A great color, I like that there are many flowers on each stem.
None (2); Singles never as popular; Stems not as sturdy as other lisianthus cultivars; 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!!!; Propagation difficult.
