Tips from our floral experts
Lisianthus are top heavy, so use a tall container to provide them with extra support. Cut stems and hydrate flowers in cool water. Place in a cooler to slow down the blooming process, if desired. Keep away from heat and drafts, and change the water every 2 days. Remove any foliage that will be submerged before placing the flowers into an arrangement.
