Litaris spicata 3lt

“Liatris spicata, commonly known as Blazing Star or Gayfeather, is a striking perennial that adds vertical interest and vibrant color to British gardens. Growing to a height of 60-90cm, it features tall, spiky flower spikes adorned with small, densely packed, purple-pink florets, creating a dramatic effect in borders, meadows, or as a cut flower.

Best planted in full sun and well-drained soil, Liatris thrives in various garden settings and blooms from mid to late summer, making it a valuable late-season nectar source for bees and butterflies.

Low-maintenance and drought-tolerant once established, this perennial requires minimal pruning, mainly to remove faded flower spikes and tidy up the plant in early spring. Feeding with a balanced fertilizer in spring supports healthy growth and enhances flowering.

Liatris spicata not only enhances garden aesthetics with its striking vertical blooms but also serves as an essential food source for bees and other pollinators, contributing to pollination efforts and biodiversity. Its resilience and ecological benefits make it a valuable addition to wildlife-friendly gardens across the UK, providing beauty and supporting local wildlife.”
