The ultimate Monarch butterfly magnet!  The beautiful purple blossoms of this Liatris should be your first choice for attracting Monarch and other butterflies to sunny, medium-soil sites in late summer.  It's not uncommon to see dozens of Monarchs nectaring on a stand of Meadow Blazing Star.

These upright plants can reach 5' in rich soils; in a garden setting you may want to stake the plants.  The height of this Liatris make it an easy target for Monarchs and other butterflies and birds to feed.  Blossoms often appear all at once along stems and last for many weeks late summer.  Birds find the seeds appealing later in the year.

Dormant bare root plants ship each year during optimal transplanting season: Fall (October) or Spring (April/May).

Potted plants come in a tray of 38 plants and ship mid-May through late-June. Click here if you prefer to mix/match up to 6 species in a tray.
