Sometimes called Blazing Star in the northern regions, this beauty is found thru out the tallgrass prairies. We found this perennial growing in thick stands on damp sandy clay near the Katy prairies. If you live in an area of sandy, well-drained soils and get frequent rainfall, you'll want to plant this species rather than the Liatris mucronata. This one is adapted to 30-40" rainfall areas of Texas' coastal bend, north thru the blacklands and open bottomlands of the Piney Woods.
