A Hummingbird & Butterfly Garden Staple

Like rays from shooting stars, the violet tufted flowers of Blazing Star Liatris cover tall flower spikes. As the flowers begin opening - from the top downward - they beckon a host of hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden!

Low-Maintenance Native Plant
Blazing Star Liatris is native to North American, where it is adaptable to a variety of climates and soils across its perennial range in USDA hardiness zones 3 through 8.
• Full sun is best for healthy growth and prolific blooms.
• Although established plants are drought-tolerant, they'll do best in slightly moist soils.
• Well-draining soil is best, but this plant is forgiving and adaptable to clay soils.
• You won't need to spray toxic chemicals on Blazing Star Liatris, because it is naturally pest- and disease-resistant.

Bulb-Like Corms and How They Grow
Blazing Star Liatris grows from corms, which look like small bulbs. Planting these couldn't be easier - simply bury them in the soil 1 inch deep and 6 inches apart. You'll see the grass-like foliage appear first in spring to early summer, which will be followed by the tall flower spikes in mid- to late summer.

Design Tips
• Because Blazing Star Liatris is such a tall, slender plant, it looks best when you plant the corms in groups. Don't line the corms like soldiers - group them in clusters for a bigger color punch.
• Place this plant at the back of the border for vertical impact with lower-growing annuals or perennials in front.
• Blazing Star Liatris can be easily grown in containers - it'll give the "thriller" (tall) dimension to your "filler" (rounded) and "spiller" (cascading) plants.
