Organic Dense Blazing Star

The Liatris 'Spicata', is a perennial and is also known as 'Dense Blazing Star', 'Dense Button Snakeroot' or 'Gayfeather', has a special appearance with its flowers that bloom from top to bottom. In the first year it produces one spike-shaped flower stem per tuber, approximately 70 centimeters high, which is formed by many violet, hair-like flowers.

The flowers provide nectar to pollinating insects, including bees and butterflies. Liatris blooms for 5 to 6 weeks in mid-summer. Like the lily, it has many narrow, grass-like leaves that grow along the flower stems from the base to the first flower buds.

How, where and when do I plant liatris tubers?

The tubers of the liatris are hardy, so they can be planted immediately. When planting, consider a planting depth that is 2 to 3 times the height of the tuber, and a planting distance that is 2 to 3 times the width of the tuber. Liatris thrives in both partial shade and full sun.

It thrives best in well-drained soil. She prefers a soil that is slightly moist but not too wet, as excess moisture can cause the tubers to rot.

The ideal soil for Liatris ' Spicata' is a light, sandy soil mixed with organic matter, such as compost or well-decomposed manure. This soil provides good drainage and helps retain moisture and nutrients around the roots. In addition, you can liatris also grow in clay soil, as long as the soil is well-drained and not too compact. Adding organic matter can help improve the structure of clay soil and promote drainage.

Care of the Liatris

Allow the plant to die back completely before cutting it back to the ground in the fall. Liatris is winter hardy and can be left in the garden during the winter months without any problems. This reliable perennial will return year after year. For optimal results, it is recommended to feed annually.

We recommend Bio Kultura for organic potting soil, plant food and other soil improvers!
