Liatris microcephala - Dwarf Blazing Star
A beautiful native with compact growth only reaching a height of 18-24 inches. The foliage is deep green and finely textured that give the plant appeal throughout the growing season. Each plant will send up several stalks of rosy purple flowers that bloom in the late summer to early fall. This is an excellent Cutflower and will tolerate drought conditions. Works great in a dry rock garden that gets full sun. Great butterfly attractor.
