Blooms all summer long! Prairie Blazing Star (Liatris pycnostachya) has attractive pink to purple blossoms on sturdy 3- t0 4-foot tall spikes. Flowers open from top to bottom and hold their color well when dried — excellent for cuttings! Frequently visited by bees, butterflies and hummingbirds, this hardy plant makes a nice addition to borders and native landscapes. (Perennial)

Each packet contains approximately 250 seeds.

Planting and Growing Tips:
These popular wildflowers thrive in locations with full sun, but will tolerate partial shade, and moist, well irrigated soils. Sow indoors under lights 4- to 8-weeks before the last frost date of spring or direct sow in sunny locations after temperatures have warmed. Space seedlings 12- to 18-inches apart in all directions and mulch well to discourage weeds and conserve moisture.

Note: Germination is greatly improved with a 3- to 4-week cold treatment (see Seed Stratification). Place seeds and slightly damp paper towels in a Ziploc bag and store in the refrigerator prior to planting.
