Liatris spicata is native prairie wildflower. The tall spikes of purple flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies, and the ripening seeds attract birds. It's also a host plant for Painted Lady and Silvery Checkerspot butterfly larvae.

Liatris spicata is equally at home in wildflower gardens or formal borders. It blooms in mid summer, making it a great companion plant for echinacea, gaillardia, rudbeckia and ornamental grasses.

Liatris spicata is adaptable to a wide range of climates and conditions. Also known as Dense Blazing Star. Deer resistant. Hardy perennial in zones 3-10.
