Liatris spicata, commonly known as Gayfeather, is a perennial flowering plant native to North America. It belongs to the Asteraceae family and is renowned for its striking spikes of densely packed, fluffy, purple to magenta flower heads. These flower spikes can reach impressive heights, adding vertical interest to garden landscapes.
The lance-shaped leaves are typically arranged in a basal rosette, and the plant produces a tall, slender stem that supports the vibrant, bottlebrush-like blooms. Liatris spicata is well-loved for its ability to attract butterflies, bees, and other pollinators to the garden. It thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, making it a popular choice for perennial borders, wildflower gardens, or naturalized areas. With its long-lasting, eye-catching flowers and minimal maintenance requirements, Liatris spicata is a charming addition to gardens seeking both beauty and ecological benefits.
