Regular price $3.75

Description

A North American native favorite! This Liatris sends up tall spikes of bright, tufted blossoms that bloom from the top down. This perennial is one of the few in the Liatris family that likes wet areas, so it is often used in wetland plantings. Butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds find the pink nectar spikes irresistible.


Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 48"

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!
