Liatris General Information

Liatris are excellent compact plants for perennial borders and cutting gardens. No staking is needed. Flowers form on tall spikes that rise from a basal tuft of narrow, grass-like foliage. Foliage remains attractive throughout the growing season. Fuzzy, thistle-like blossoms open on spikes from top to bottom. Excellent pollinator attractors. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Liatris Plant Care

Grows in any condition. Low maintenance. Cut back flowering spikes by one half after flowering to promote rebloom. Seedheads can be left on to provide fall interest and to supply winter bird food. Can be divided every 4 years or so in spring or fall. Emerging plants look like grass clumps so be careful in spring when weeding.
