'Alba' (Gayfeather)

Liatris spicata

Great as fresh-cut flowers or in dried arrangements.

Prized for its fluffy wands of bright rosy lavender flowers, Liatris is a compact, clump-forming perennial of great ornamental value. Flowering in succession from top to bottom over several weeks, the tufted flower heads contrast nicely with the finely textured, grassy foliage. Attractive to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, this beautiful native American enjoys a long season of interest from early to midsummer and supplies winter bird food. The narrow, opposite leaves stay attractive all summer and turn a rich bronze in the fall. White flowers.  USA Native. Cut Flower, Deer Resistant, Fragrant, Pollinator
