Lisianthus (Eustoma grandiflorum)

The lisianthus, a member of the Gentianaceae family, is known for its many color varieties especially its blue tones and long vase life. Originating in the West Indies, Mexico, and Central and South America, the flower is known botanically as Eustoma grandiflorum. The common name comes from the Greek words lysis, meaning "dissolution," and anthos, meaning "flower," and alludes to the bitter quality of some medicinal species.
