This cupped flower somewhat resembles a rose or ranunculus that's missing a few petals. Lisianthus, also known as Texas bluebell, prairie gentian or prairie rose, boasts multiple blossoms and buds on a single stem and has a slight peppery scent. Despite its delicate appearance, it flourishes in hot grasslands of the United States and Mexico and, once cut, can last up to a few weeks in an arrangement.

 

The ruffled bell-shaped blooms are commonly available in white, purple, and pink (and sometimes two-toned). Their beautiful, long-stemmed, almond-shaped buds add a naturally rustic and romantic look to any wedding bouquet or arrangement. The wide range of colors make it an excellent choice as a secondary flower for bouquets and arrangements.
