Dense blazingstar (Liatris spicata) is native to the northeast, its beautiful whimsical flower spikes that are loved by hummingbirds, bees and butterflies. Blazingstar supplies a winter food source for birds and is deer resistant . It prefers well drained soils, as the stem may rot if overwintered in waterlogged soil. An excellent accent plant, especially when planted next to natives with contrasting yellow blooms, such as green-headed coneflower, black-eyed susans and lance-leaf coreopsis.

Growing Instructions

Cold, moist stratification required. Mix seeds with moist substrate (vermiculite, perlite or moss) and place in a plastic bag and refrigerate for 6-8 weeks. Sow seed at 1/8 inch depth. Do not let seedling dry out while it is establishing.

OR

Sow directly outdoors in late fall to overwinter.
