Dense Blazing Star (Liatris Spicata pink) 50 seeds (#1724)

Grows easily and reliably from seeds, this wildflower has dense violet-lavender to rosy purple flower heads, which provide striking vertical form in the perennial wild flower garden. They perform well in average well-drained soils and full sun, yet they also tolerates poor soils and drought. Unbranched stalks bear dense spikes of lavender to purple flowers in July and August on strong stems. The nectar-rich flowers are a favorite with butterflies and hummingbirds. Songbirds love the wildflower seed.
Plants are great in perennial borders, cutting gardens, native plant gardens, butterfly gardens, naturalized areas, prairies or meadows. Interestingly, it flowers from the top down!
