how best to plant a liatris spicata plant
and what about aftercare

On plant Liatris spicata



Give it sun or light shade, water in well and mulch to retain moisture. It will flower late summer/autumn. Take flower spikes off when they fade to let the plant put energy into its roots for next year. Mark where it is as it will disappear in winter!
