I came across this beautiful Lisiathus when I was at The College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine. I had done an Art Show there this past summer and was told about the gardens. Which I in turned returned back to photograph. It was a beautiful setting over looking the harbor. Unfortunately those photos didn't turn out too well, but I did get lots of flowers, which I will be adding to my website throughout the next couple of months.
The Lisiathus is an annual flower great for borders, containers and beds. It requires full sun and grows1-3 feet tall. It is drought tolerant, easy to grow and makes a great cut flower. I have seen them in whites, pinks and of course the purple.
Hey while your checking out this beautiful Lisiathus on my website, take a moment to check out more new photos I have added.
