A great plant. I planted it in the garden at our local elementary school where there is no access to water. It grew well with little supplementing water.
It attracts monarchs and other butterflies very well. A real butterfly magnet. B. Cullina's wildflower book lists this species of liatris as being the best for butterfliees and I agree.
