I've never grown liatris spicata before, but have wanted to try it, and 6 for 10 bucks is a great price. It will make a nice vignette with other white perennials. NOTE: These did not grow in 2012, like most of the things I ordered from Spring Hill. White Gardens, White Flowers, Full Sun, Stars Liatri, Plants, Bulbs, Blazing Stari, Blazing Stars, White Blazing
Liatris spicata: Purple Blazing Star --- Long vase life as a cut flower. Feathery purple flowers; beloved by butterflies; cover 18"- 36" spikes beginning in midsummer. Outstanding cut flower is great for both fresh and dried bouquets. Nice contrast to other perennials. Long-lived plants grow bigger and better each year. 8-10 cm bulbs. Zones: 3-9; Light: Full Sun to Partial Shade; Height: 18-36"
Blazing Star~ A North American prairie native, blazing star bears spikes of white, rose, or purple flowers that attract butterflies. It's an excellent plant to add vertical accent to the perennial garden, and the blooms are ideal for cutting and drying. Zones 3-9
