Dotted blazing star is one of the most drought tolerant Liatris species, and is the most suited for western Canada. Featuring stout flowering spikes rising above strap like green leaves. Suitable for planting in gravelly, infertile soils.
Great for rock and xeriscape gardens along with wildflower meadows. Definitely suitable for cutting if cut at the beginning of its bloom. The flowers will retain their purple color and will make an excellent dried flower.
The purple flowers of the Dotted Blazing Star attract many pollinators, specifically native bees and butterflies along with hummingbirds and birds.
