No longer available this season.
Dwarf Blazing Star is a butterfly and hummingbird-attracting plant with spiky purple blooms and grass-like foliage. Happy with poor soils and tough conditions, this native beauty handles heat and drought beautifully and can also tolerate the humidity of the deep south. Blooms appear and open from top to bottom on showy, upright stalks. A true, but showy, low-maintenance plant. (Liatris microcephala)
