Very pleased with this selection due to its shorter height that fits with my garden scheme. The foliage is very pretty.
Liatris spicata 'Kobold'
- Great for an upright accent to mounding perennials
- More compact variety
- 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. Fantastic plant that adds vibrant color and excellent stature to the garden. One of the best perennials for the sunny border.
