Availability: Out of stock

While you may recognize Liatris as staple in cut flower arrangements, it may be even more at home in your garden where it will be one of the easiest to grow perennials you’ve ever had. And with Roberta’s 40 pc Blazing Star Liatris Collection you will be receiving twenty purple and twenty white liatris that will pop up in your garden in as little as 70 days! These winter hardy perennials will continue blooming all summer long, year after year attracting a plethora of our favorite pollinators - butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds – during the summer, and then in the fall the gold finches and various other birds will come seeking out their seeds. Yes, our varieties will self-seed in the autumn so each year brings more flowers! Liatris Blazing Star is an incredible fuzzy vertical growing flower that reaches about three to five feet tall on beautiful two-foot wide mounds of grass-like foliage. During the spring and summer the mounds remain deep green and then in the fall they bronze like your autumn foliage. We believe Blazing Stars look best when planted in bunches and that is why we designed this collection, to bring you maximum intrigue and form to your garden right away. Plus our varieties will bloom about three solid months, an extra month compared to most.

Details

Planted in your perennial borders and flowerbeds, amongst your dahlias, lilies, and daisies is an exceptional way to emphasize their unique form and structure. And their vertical nature means they take up minimal space making them perfect for even the smallest garden. They heighten every garden bed. And with such a large collection, you can expect anywhere from 3-5 flowers per bulb the first year (and more every year thereafter) meaning you’ll have plenty of chances to cut a few for your cut flower arrangements. Since our varieties actually flower from the top down, you can even cut a portion of the top of the flower off to bring inside and it will simply grow back on your plant! Not only will your Blazing Stars have your garden humming as pollinators seek their nectar rich flowers, these drought tolerant, heat resistant, and deer resistant plants are true low maintenance garden performers and North American natives. And with our 40 piece collection you can really make some headway on designing your ultimate garden – whether that be a cottage garden, formal garden, or naturalistic garden – this Blazing Stars Collection is what your garden needs.
