The plants arrived carefully packaged and in great condition. I could not put them in immediately but kept them watered and in dappled shade. They are happily blooming in my garden today. Couldn't be happier with this plant purchase.
Liatris spicata 'Kobold Original'
- Calculated at Checkout
- Great for an upright accent to mounding perennials

- A big favorite of the butterflies
Outstanding spikes of rose-lavender flowers open from the top down in early summer. The foliage is green, narrow, and opposite. It is deer resistant, attracts butterflies, and makes a great cut flower. A fantastic plant that adds vibrant color and excellent stature to the garden. One of the best perennials for the sunny border.
