Liatris scariosa 'White spires'

Gayfeather, Blazing Star

One of the more unusual Liatris with plenty of bold, pure white fluffy flowers on erect stems. 

It is an easy to grow, long lasting plant if given sharp drainage. 

The roots are bulbous so can easily rot in the wet. 

It's a native of the hot, dry prairies so it can tolerate drought and fairly poor soil. 

Bees will love you for planting these!
