Dense Blazing Star (Liatris spicata)
Plants form a low clump of grassy looking leaves, bearing tall spikes of bright magenta-purple flowers beginning in midsummer. Very useful in the sunny border or meadow garden, or in containers. Drought tolerant. Attractive to butterflies.
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Somewhat tolerant of poor soils, but prefers moist, fertile ones and generally performs better in moist soils.
