How to grow Liatris

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 out. You don't need to fertilize Liatris, but if you do want to ensure you do so only at the start of spring. Liatris flowers bloom from the top down 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.
