Liatris graminafolia (Asteraceae)
Grass Leaf Blazing Star
Unbranched stalks up to 3' lined with narrow grass-like leaves distinguish this native blazing star. Distributed along the coastal plain from New Jersey to Alabama, it is found in dry, rocky or sandy soils in open woods, wood edges, barrens and other dry sunny spots. Tolerates some shade but not wet areas. Lavender-purple flowers line the stalks, blooming from July to October. Mix with late-summer rudbeckias and coneflowers for a stunning late-summer meadow display.
