Liatris microcephala

Liatris microcephala

Blazing Star - Dwarf

Dwarf Blazing Star is a lovely native plant with delicate strap-like foliage topped by magenta-purple flower spikes in August and September. The shiny green leaves have an almost grass-like appearance. Butterflies and insects love the late season flowers, which also make good short cut flowers. Liatris microcephala tolerates dry sites well, so it would be a good choice for green roofs.

PRN Preferred:  Tons of flowers on a compact plant.  When blooming it is covered with pollinators.
