Florida Blue is a heat-tolerant, semi-dwarf lisianthus developed at the Univ. of Floridas Gulf Coast Research and Education Center, Bradenton. I have had very good results growing this Lisianthus in Central Florida, and it does take heat and cutting back hard well. It has bloomed for me from Spring to Late Summer.
