Origin

The lisianthus originates from North America, where it grows in desert riverbeds and in prairie regions. In the states of Texas, Nebraska, Nevada and Colorado they call this plant prairie gentian. Although originally an American beauty, the lisianthus’s rise to glory really only started in Japan. It was Japanese growers who crossed the prairie gentian in the 1930s to create the lisianthus we know today.
