I have a little "knot" garden (that's what I've heard them called, though I'm not sure why?) with a few other drought resistant plants out there in FULL TEXAS SUN . . . so I think these should do fine out there. IF they survive the transplanting part. Otherwise, I'll just start some from seed next spring and add them then.
The last link jnana provided has the *how to* on germinating the seeds and starting them out. Hopefully that will produce lots of little Liatris for everyone that wants some of these seeds. I have plenty, so anyone that wants some, DMail me and I'll send you my addy so you can send a SASE and I'll get them out asap.
Here's a pic of the ones I added to my little rock garden.
