Blazing Star Liatris - Modern Cut Flower
One of my favorite things to do is to cut flowers for vases in my home. If I can get a plant that not only looks good outside, but inside -- perfect.
Recently the Liatris were blooming on the corner of the house. As a native Wisconsin plant, I've always liked it for the lovely spikes of purple.
So, I couldn't resist. I cut one for a vase next to my bathroom mirror. Wow. I couldn't believe the look.
Stuck in a little bud vase all by itself, Liatris is a beautiful and unusual flower. Very modern looking -- I'm sure that with a larger arrangement it would work equally well.

That bloom is unusual and beautiful. Wouldn't it just make a great addition to an arrangement.
What an attractive plant your Liatris is. I love the colour!!!
Beautiful plant and lovely color, my fav. I had a Liatris and it produced 2 stalks, but they didn't get full like yours appears. And then it croaked!!
Many of the plants in my garden need to be hardy enough to survive neglect. :) I'm lucky with this one, I guess.
I love the liatris...and so do the little finches in my garden area. I just ordered some more white liatris so I could have it in a few more areas....Sherry
