As a flower farmer, I've always been passionate about the diverse range of flowers that paint the landscape of our flower beds. Among the myriad of blooms, the lisianthus flower holds a unique position.
It was one of the first cut flowers I decided to specialize in, and over time, its characteristics have provided practical lessons for the farm.
Anyone familiar with lisianthus knows they're not the easiest flower to grow. They're specific about their growing temperature, need just the right amount of sun, and they definitely take their time to grow.
But with patience, the result is worth the wait. This slow-growing nature makes them special, and it reminds me of the importance of perseverance in all we do.
While the lisianthus might be delicate to look at, it's surprisingly hardy. These flowers can handle cooler temperatures better than many other blooms, and once they're cut and arranged in a vase, they last a long time.
This durability and their capability to give two flushes of flowers make them a favorite for many, including myself.
Every time I look at our lisianthus crops, I'm reminded of the early days. Those days when I was just starting out, figuring things out, making mistakes, and learning from them. This flower, in its subtle way, symbolizes those beginnings for me.
To all those embarking on new journeys or reminiscing about their own beginnings, take a moment to appreciate the steadfast nature of the lisianthus. It's a testament to the value of patience, resilience, and the rewards that come from both.

I had to take a moment to sit down and reflect on what has been an absolutely magical Valentine's Day here on the farm. Last week holds a special place in my heart as we celebrate not just love, but also growth, resilience, and the power of community.
