Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Stiff spikes of tightly packed buds open from the top of the stem downwards to reveal columns of fluffy mauve blooms. Liatris spicata makes a colourful display in late summer which attracts clouds of bees and butterflies to its nectar rich flowers. This resilient and undemanding perennial also makes a bold cut flower for vases in doors. Height: 150cm (60”). Spread: 45cm (18”). Bare root plants supplied.

Flowering Months
Water regularly throughout the growing season until plant is fully established. In autumn, remove old foliage and faded Liatris flowers. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Gayfeather plants in spring.
Plant Liatris bare roots at the earliest opportunity following delivery. Should soil conditions prevent planting directly into borders (if soil is frozen or waterlogged), Liatris should be potted up, watered sparingly and grown on in a cool position. Choose a position in full sun on reliably moist, light, well drained soil. Work some compost or general fertiliser into the top 20cm of the soil. Dig a hole wide enough to accommodate the bare root with its roots spread out, and deep enough that the crown of the plant is just a few cm below soil level. Backfill the hole with soil and firm the Liatris plant in gently. Water well to settle the soil.
