Blazing Star (Liatris spicata)

Blazing Star: Liatris spicata, or blazing star, are a native wildflower species originating in the eastern United States. TN Nursery suggests this plant for anyone who wants a flower that is resilient, easy to manage, and still colorful enough to display proudly.

The blazing star plant loves to bask in the sunshine and enjoys the heat and humidity. Conversely, it also tolerates drought--it only needs assistance from you during extended drought. This plant is unfussy about soil types--mix in some compost every so often to feed it.

In nature, blazing star grows in open grassy meadows or fields--its significant height means tall wild grasses do not overshadow it.

Other names for the blazing star include the following:

  • Marsh blazing star
  • Dense blazing star
  • Snakeroot
  • Gayfeather
  • Spike gayfeather

The Striking Good Looks of the Blazing Star

The blazing star is notable for its stunning, slender stalks that grow tall as if reaching for the sun. The stalks may stretch as high as six feet in optimal growing conditions.

The grassy-looking, glossy green leaves grow from attractive clumps. The stalks shoot up straight from the center of each plant, forming dramatic spikes.

Flowers form on unbranched spikes and blossom in striking, bold lavender or purple. The blooms open from the very top to the bottom and have a whimsical, fluffy appearance.

The bright color and soft floral notes attract the interest of many bees and butterflies.
