Description

Liatris punctata also known by the common names dotted gayfeather, dotted blazingstar, and narrow-leaved blazingstar. It is native to North America, where it occurs throughout the plains of central Canada, the central United States, and northern Mexico.

This perennial produces one or more erect stems 14 to 85 cm (6 in to 2 ft 9 in) tall. They grow from a thick taproot 1.3 to 5 m (4 ft 3 in to 16 ft 5 in) deep that produces rhizomes. The heads contain several flowers which are usually purple, but sometimes white. This species is long-lived, with specimens estimated to be over 35 years old.

It is drought-tolerant because of its deep roots, though it does become less abundant in times of drought. It is also fire-tolerant, able to re-sprout from its rhizome and disperse its wind-carried seeds to soil cleared of litter by fire. On plains and prairies it grows with many types of grasses.

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 3-9 

Height: 2 feet, 24 inches, 60 cm

Location: Sun or part sun

Seeds per pack: 10

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Surface sow the seeds on a sterile seed-start mix, and keep continually moist until plants germinate. Germinate at room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F). Seeds germinate in 20-50 days.
