Liatris spicata (Asteraceae)
(lie-A-tris spi-KAY-ta)

A very adaptable eastern species of Liatris, tolerant of moist-to-wet or average-to-dry garden conditions. Grassy basal tufts send up sturdy flower spikes with densely clustered fuchsia-to-lavender blooms in midsummer striking to humans, irresistible to butterflies! This versatile and feathery pop-up plant is at home in the meadow, formal garden, or eclectic perennial border.
