Meadow blazing star Description:

Liatris ligulistylis, also known as Rocky Mountain blazing star, is a herbaceous perennial plant native to North America. It typically grows to a height of 1 to 3 feet (30 to 90 cm) and has a clumping habit with narrow, grass-like leaves that are up to 20 inches (50 cm) long.


In mid to late summer, Liatris ligulistylis produces tall, upright spikes of small, pink to purple flowers that bloom from the top down. The flowers are densely packed and surrounded by showy bracts, giving the spike a fluffy, cylindrical appearance. The blooms are attractive to butterflies, bees, and other pollinators, making it a valuable addition to pollinator gardens.


Liatris ligulistylis prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soils that are rich in organic matter. It is drought tolerant once established and can tolerate a range of soil types. It is a hardy plant that can withstand cold temperatures and is generally pest and disease resistant.


Overall, Liatris ligulistylis is a beautiful and low-maintenance perennial that can add color and interest to a variety of garden styles, including wildflower and prairie gardens. It is also sometimes used for medicinal purposes by Native American tribes.
