Liatris spicata 'Florestan's White'

Liatris spicata 'Florestan's White' (Liatris spicata)

The books say this can reach five feet but mine have never got more than half this height (and were planted in 2000). For a sunny spot. Winter wet is their biggest enemy so a well-drained soil is necessary in the UK. After the flowers fade, the plants look tatty so are best planted where they can moulder away out of sight
