LIATRIS spicata Alba Perennial Plant
This product is unavailable
The Liatris is an impressive white ornamental perennial that can quickly become a centrepiece of your garden. A close relative sunflower, the Liatris is also sometimes called 'blazing star' for its vibrant colours and long spiked petals that splay out in a starlike shape. These versatile plants are easy to grow and attract pollinators into your garden, making them ideal for butterfly gardens.
How to grow Liatris
Plant in a space with dappled or partial shade in soil that is well-draining. These plants can also be successfully planted in rocky areas. Water young plants every other day for the first few weeks. Once established, they don't need much water and can be watered when the soil has dried. You don't need to fertilize Liatris, but if you want to ensure, you do so only at the start of spring. Liatris flowers bloom from the top, so pinch back the spent blooms to keep the flowers neat. After plants have finished blooming, the flower stalks can be cut back to their basal leaves, or you can leave stalks as a food source for local and migrating birds.
