The Lisianthus Society
The Lisianthus Society was created in 2015 to recognize Members and Friends for their generosity, dedication and support of the Women’s Council’s annual fundraising events.
The Lisianthus flower is an elegant beauty grown in the southern United States and a descendent of the North American wildflower. Also known as a Texas Bluebell, it is native to Texas and is similar in appearance to a rose with double varieties resembling peonies.
The Lisianthus flower is the perfect symbol for the beauty, grace, strength and spirit of women so wonderfully celebrated in A Woman’s Garden.
