Liatris ligulistylis

Meadow Blazing Star

  • Category: Natives
  • Hardiness Zone: 3
  • Height: 3-5 feet
  • Bloom Color: Purple

Tall flower spikes covered with small fuzzy purple blooms burst forth from shiny green, narrow-leafed rosettes. Long bloom time in late summer; the perfect nectar source for pollinators getting ready to migrate or hibernate. Irresistible to butterflies; you often see dozens of them fluttering around the stalks. Staking may be needed.
