Spiked Gayfeather, Blazing Star
USDA Hardiness Zone 2-9
Rose-lavender spikes open from the top down! One of the most popular cut flowers in the florist industry.
This is the true Liatris 'Kobold', which maintains its short stature. A lot of what is sold as 'Kobold' is more likely the taller regular (spicata) species.
