We love this reliable summer bloomer almost as much as the butterflies do. Liatris Blazing Star sends up tall, individual spires of dark green, opposite leaves which are followed by completely upright plumes of feathery pink or white florets. Each inflorescence can reach 90cm (36") tall, and they are magnets for butterflies of all types, along with bees and even hummingbirds. Deer, however, give them a wide berth, so they're great for coastal gardens. The plants are hardy to Zone 2, so they are highly versatile. Grow in full sun.
Package contains 25 corms.

Bulbs are easy to plant and easy to grow. Flower Bulbs are broken down into two very general groups – Fall planting bulbs benefit from sitting in cold soil. Spring planting bulbs do not require cold soil to trigger flowering. Fall planting bulbs can be planted any time between late September and January, but most gardeners plant fall bulbs in October and November, about the same time you would plant garlic. Fall planting bulbs will bloom the following spring and early summer. Spring planting bulbs (we don’t have any at this time), should be sunk into the ground in March and April. They tend to bloom later in the spring, into mid-summer. Follow along with this handy How to Grow Bulbs Guide and grow some colour.
