    Liatris grows wild here, but the ones I know of are along a State Hwy, and it is illegal to have some of theirs.

    However, I finally did find some at the Family Dollar Store a few years ago, so I have some of my own growing. I found some at another store a few weeks ago, and planted it a few days ago. I love it. Now, if I could get some big purple alliums to grow. The last ones that I bought were duds. Alliums and liatris would look nice together.
