Plant Information

Meadow Blazing Star, or Liatris ligulistylis, is a must-have for any pollinator garden or monarch waystation. This native beauty provides an abundance of pollen to butterflies in the late summer into the fall, often when they need it most. Its height also makes it an easier target for monarchs and other butterflies, bees and hummingbirds.

This showy wildflower grows to be 5’ tall and looks right at home in the back of the garden or in a prairie or wildflower meadow. If grown in a formal garden setting, you may want to stake the plants. Be sure to put this somewhere you can watch the butterfly show!

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
