BLOOMS SUMMER Ready Potted 1 Litre Pot



Already Potted In 1 Litre Round Pots With Growth, Root And Shoot Development. The Main Picture Is A Stock Photo Only And Shows How The Plant Will Look When The Plant Is Fully Mature. Amount Of Bulbs Per Pot Varies Depending On The Type/Size Of Bulb, But Rest Assured The Pots Are Full. Each Pot Makes A Lovely Display And Can Be Either Left In Pots Or Taken Out And Used To Add Colour To Larger Containers, Or Borders.

“Liatris Spicata” Has Spires Of Blazing Stars Which Are Displayed When Summer Is At Its Peak. These Lovely Wild Flowers Are Members Of The Genius Liatris. These Herbaceous Perennials Are Found In Grasslands And Lightly Wooded Areas Throughout North America, Mexico And The West Indies. Widely Cultivated, Blazing Stars Add Bright Colour And Vertical Appeal To Perennial Gardens And Wildflower Meadows. They Are Highly Attractive To Butterflies And Also Make Excellent Long-Lasting Cut Flowers.

The Plants Form Basal Rosettes Of Linear To Broadly Lance-Shaped Foliage Which Is Also Borne Alternately, On The Upright, Single Or Branched Stems That Rise From The Ground. The Smooth-Edged Leaves Are Usually Dotted With Small Glands.

Button-Like Flower Clusters Are Borne In Showy, Elongated Spikes At The Ends Of The Stems And Are Often Fluffy, Stringy Or Fuzzy In Appearance. Liatris Is Unusual In That The Flowers Bloom From The Top Down Rather Than The Bottom Up, As Is Common With Most Upright Spiked Flowers. This Makes Them A Great Cut Flower, Because As The Old Flowers At The Top Begin To Look Spent, They Can Just Be Snipped Off And The Stalk Will Continue Putting Out Fresh Blooms Farthr Down The Stem.With The Sturdy Stalks And Bright Colour. The Fruits That Follow Resemble Small, Narrow Sunflower Seeds And Hace Barbs, Plumes Or Bristles Which Cling To Animal Fur Or Clothing To Facilitate Dispersal.

Liatris Is One Of The Best Plants You Can Grow For A Cut Flower Garden. They Can Also Be Dried For Winter Use In Arrangements. They Should Be Cut When Half To 2/3rds In Bloom, Then Hung Upside Down In A Dark, Warm Dry Room With Good Air Circulation.

Liatris Are Easy To Grow Prefering Full To Part Sun And Average To Dry, Sandy Or Loamy, Well-Drained Soils. Bury The Corms No More Than 2” Below The Soil Line And Less If Using Mulch. Corms Planted Upside Down Will Result In No Plant. “Liatris Spicata” Is Well Suited To Mixed Perennial Borders And Wild Flower Gardens.

“Liatris Spicata” Can Be Grown From Seed, But Take About 2-3 Years To Mature And Flower.
