Plant Features

The Kobold Liatris Plant, often regarded as the best spicata cultivar for the garden, features numerous spikes of deep rosy-purple flowers on plants that are much shorter than the species. Blazing star plants have an excellent ability to cope with adverse conditions; they can withstand drought, heat and humidity, and the cold of winter. They thrive on moderate to poor soil if there is good drainage. Liatris bloom attract butterflies, bees, hummingbirds and seed eating birds; deer avoid them.


Common Names: blazing star, dense blazing star, marsh blazing star, gayfeather

Kobold Liatris Plant Care Instructions: Keep the plant well-watered for the first 3-4 weeks. After that, only water if the plant starts looking droopy.

Comment: Bought 3 at a good price. Product arrived in great condition due to excellent packing. All three arrived with a nice bunch of leaves and appeared to be ready for planting. It's only been a day or so since planting, but all three are doing well in 95 degree Georgia heat.

Comment: The plant was healthy and well packaged. It took 2 transplants to figure out the best soil environment for this one. It struggled a bit in the first pot but appears to be doing better in its 2nd one.
