Liatris spicata

Dense Blazing Star is an upright, clump forming perennial that’s native to eastern North America. In the wild, it’s often found growing in moist prairies and meadows or along edge habitats. Its grass-like leaves form at the base and ascend up the stems. The purple, tufted flowers are arranged along these flowering spikes and bloom from the top down. The long styles give the flowers a feathery appearance. Butterflies, bees and hummingbirds are attracted to these beautiful flowers.
