Liatris ligulistylis is wonderful for attracting butterflies, especially Monarchs. Birds feast on the ripening seeds in the fall. The very tall spikes of purple flowers bloom in late summer. Liatris ligulistylis can grow up to 5 feet tall, so you may need to stake it in the garden, especially if your soil is rich or moist. Liatris is drought tolerant and deer resistant.
Also known as Meadow Blazing Star. Hardy in zones 3-9.
