About Liatris Spicata Alba

Liatris Spicata Alba, also known as White Blazing Star or Gayfeather, adds a captivating touch to late-summer gardens, boasting tall wands adorned with fluffy, brilliant white flower clusters that bloom from the top down. Throughout summer, its delicate, grass-like green foliage remains attractive and seamlessly transitions to a rich bronze hue in the fall, harmonizing beautifully with the landscape.

Once in bloom, these majestic spires sway gracefully in the breeze. Plant them in places where you want to add height, visual interest, and colour without a lot of fuss. Florists love Liatris as it's not only long-lasting, but also commands attention in bouquets and when dried.

As a native prairie plant, the Blazing Star acts as a magnet for butterflies and various pollinators, enriching your garden's ecosystem. Once the blooms fade, their seeds serve as a nourishing treat for finches and other small birds.

How to Grow Liatris

Planting Liatris

  • Plant in spring after the last frost.
  • If you cannot plant your bulbs and perennials right away, store them in a cool, dry, dark location, like a basement.
  • Plant the bulbs with the flat root plate facing down into the soil and the eyes, or crown, facing upwards about 13 cm (5 in) deep and space 15 to 20 cm (6 to 8 in) apart.
  • Liatris will grow in full sun to partial shade but it will require 6 hours of sunshine a day for best results.

Growing Liatris

  • These bulbs thrives in a range of soils from slightly acidic to slightly alkaline, so soil amendments are rarely needed.
  • Water as needed during active growth periods, but allow the soil to become dry between watering.

Liatris Care

  • Whether in the garden as a specimen plant, en masse as foundation plantings or in a cutting garden, this is a consistent and colourful performer.
  • When in bloom, feel free to cut some flowers for bouquets.
  • These flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

Winterizing Liatris

  • After flowering, the leaves should be allowed to die down. The leaves will gather sunlight and provide nourishment for next year’s show.
  • You should be able to grow them right up into a USDA zone 4 with no problem outdoors. This is a cold-hardy bulb that does not require any winter protection in colder gardens.
