Liatris “Alba” spicata white
Liatris are a beautiful tall spiky flower that add a new texture to the gardens. This type are a beautiful white. The butterflies are always around this bed for this plant and the orange butterfly plant. I did cut some for a vase this summer and really enjoyed the look they added to the arrangement.
The tag says:
They are called gayfeather, blazing star
Mine are tall about 3 – 4 feet (mine are 3.5 ft.
I have them in a full sun garden bed and they love it.
They bloomed at the very end of June through August.
I placed mine somewhere between 12 – 18 inches apart.
They have spread nicely through the bed.
Here is the purple version - I forgot to take a picture of the white ones.

I hate spam as much as I hate junk mail. Of course, spam is just virtual junk mail. OMG – I love that expression. Cleaning off my two email accounts is a pain, but I like when I have less than six entries. I file the ones that I need to keep and trash the rest. It takes a while to do this since I have a home and school account but remember – A cluttered email is a cluttered mind. I just made that up.
