Liatris aspera

One of the last blazing stars to bloom in the fall. Its appearance is very similar to eastern blazing star (Liatris scariosa) and usually starts to bloom just as eastern blazing star is finishing--which is usually about the time monarch butterflies are migrating.

Butterflies, bees and hummingbirds visit the flowers and birds eat the seeds. The flower buds are also very attractive before they open. Plant all three of the taller blazing stars together to extend and overlap the flowering period.

Uses: cut flowers, pollinators, hummingbirds, wildlife, drought tolerant
Bloom time: September

Height: 2 to 4 feet
Space: 12 to 16 inches

Sun: Full sun to light shade
Moisture: Dry to average (needs to be well-drained)
