Eustoma 'Forever Blue' F1
2001 AAS Bedding Plant Award Winner

'Forever Blue' will provide gardeners their favorite blue color throughout the gardening season. The large 2½-inch single blue flowers decorate the vigorous plants. 'Forever Blue' plants have a distinct branching habit, benefiting the gardener with more blooms and a dense plant. This trait has been submitted for a utility patent. 'Forever Blue' plants will reach 12 inches when mature, in a full-sun garden. Proven to be heat tolerant, 'Forever Blue' plants will benefit from deadheading like all other eustoma (lisianthus). These well-groomed, attractive 'Forever Blue' plants are perfectly adaptable to patio containers.
