Common Name: Rough Blazing Star
Rough Blazingstar blooms later than Liatris spicata, producing tall upright stalks with rose-purple disk florets spaced evenly along the stems. The flower spikes emerge from basal tufts of long thin green leaves and bloom August and September. Because the fluffy flowers appear at the same time rather than sequentially, Liatris aspera makes an excellent cut flower. Hummingbirds and butterflies benefit from the late summer nectar production.
