Description

Liatris aspera is also known as button blazing star, lacerate blazing star, tall prairie blazing star, or tall gayfeather, or rough blazing star. This plant is native to the United States from Texas to the west and New York to the east. It is also native to Ontario in Canada. The flowers are purple with button-like flower heads, blooming from the top down. It flowers from mid-August through October.


Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 30"

Location: Sun or part sun

Hardiness zones: 3-9

Seeds per pack: 10

Germination: As with many perennial seeds, these seeds benefit from a period of moist cold to help them begin to grow. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:

Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container at room temperature for 2 weeks (they will not grow yet), and then place them in a clear plastic bag (to retain moisture), and in a refrigerator for 4-6 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container back at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks, or occasionally several months, after the warming period. They require some patience, but are well worth the effort!
