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.
