Liatris spicata ‘Floristan White’
at Digging Dog

Liatris

Blazing Stars

An American native best planted in drifts, Liatris is a free spirit in the border, in the meadow or in the wild garden. With striking vertical lines, these Blazing Stars add lift to the garden. From a tuft of grassy leaves, stiff, bottlebrush-shaped flowers top leafy stems.

Uniquely, buds burst to bloom from the top down. Coveted by florists for both fresh and dried blossoms, Liatris endures heat, likes well drained soil, and beckons butterflies and bees.

Studded with quantities of starry button-shaped flowers, the lofty pure white spires surmount strong un-branched straight-up stems wrapped in slender fresh green foliage. No-fuss ‘Floristan White’ casts shimmering summertime accents when planted amid Echinacea ‘White Swan’ and Panicum ‘Shenandoah’.

Blooms July-early September

Size: 3' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
