Lisianthus (Eustoma grandiflorum) 



A tall, annual or biennial plant of the central and southern U.S. and Mexico that is related to the gentians, has usually pastel-colored, showy, roselike single or double flowers, and includes various cultivars grown in gardens and greenhouses for cut flowers


Lisianthus on the other hand comes from the Greek words 'lysis', which translates as 'dissolution', and 'anthos', meaning flower. ... As the lisianthus has its roots as a prairie flower, it is also suggested that it represents old-fashioned values and receptivity, calming thoughts and congeniality.
