This flower, decorating our interiors in the December months, has its roots in the Wild West and has come to Europe all the way via Japan. Even with its delicate appearance, it is quite robust, Lisianthus is rather well known but hardly celebrated. This magnificent flower deserves better praise, which can easily be done by presenting them in a special way.
