Prairie Blazing Star starter plant (Liatris pycnostachya). Great plant for the medium to moist prairie garden. Makes a nice mix with many other prairie plants. Beautiful spikes of purple flowers in mid-late summer,
These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. If ordered in the fall they may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage but in late fall or winter will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!
All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed. If kept on, I suggest ripping the sides of the pot for easier root penetration.
Blazing stars grow from corms (like small bulbs right below the soil surface) It usually takes 2-3 years before these corms are large enough to produce flowers.
