Liatris ligulistylis     Round Headed, Meadow, Rocky Mountain Blazing Star, Gayfeather    Z: 3-8    

Liatris ligulistylisAn upright, clump-forming native that's 'almost' gaudy in it's exuberant bloom of 10-15 unbranched stems and as many as 70 blooms per plant. Fluffy, thistle-like deep rose-purple blooms 1" WIDE appear on terminal columnar inflorescences.  This species, in particular, is beloved by Monarch Butterflies.  They actually attract so many Monarchs that you can hardly see the blooms.  Great for cut flowers because most blooms on a stalk open at about the same time.

Liatris pycnostachya      Tall or Prairie Blazing Star       Zone: 3-9       

Liatris pycnostachyaOne of the Biggest Liatris - it can reach 5' in height!  An upright, clump-forming East Coast Native with rounded, fluffy, rose-purple to violet-lavender flowers heads to 3/4" across crowded on terminal spikes to 20" and on rigid flower stalks.  These arise from narrow, lance-shaped leaves to 12" in length.  Blooms open top to bottom.  This species is distinguished from other in it's height and its reflexed, long-tipped involucral bracts.  You will read that this plant is a Biennial and that it's found in * wet soil in nature but that's WHY it can behave as a Biennial -- it rots in winter in wet soil but self seeds in these areas to persist and is used in wetland restoration.  Plant it in well-drained soil and it's very, very Perennial.  Featured by one of our favorite garden Gurus and hort. writers, C. Colston Burrell in this review of his book Wildflower Gardens: Designing With Nature

Lilium martagon 'Mixed Colors'   Turk's-Cap Lily             Zone:  3-8(9 in a cool spot)

Lilium martagon 'Mixed Colors'   Turk's-Cap LilySlow to establish, but long lived, forming large clumps.  Has naturalized in parts of Canada, probably just to prove how hardy it is!  And talking about Bloom Bang for your Bucks, when you plant matures, you will have paid about 50 cents per bloom - they often have 50 blooms per stem!  And there's no missing them on their 5 foot tall stems!  Blooms vary from pink to red but are generally pink.  Are shorter and stouter in the sun.  Some shade actually relaxes them a bit and that makes them a bit more graceful and appealing.  PLEASE note:  Sometimes this plant sulks the first year after being replanted and doesn't come up.  Assuming you didn't plant it in a wet spot, don't worry.  About 20% of them do this.  They want excellent drainage, love a yearly dose of lime and yet like a cover of woodland duff!  This mix is grown by Plantsman Gene Bush (owner of former Munchkin Nursery) from seed collected in his garden from a wide variety of Turk's Cap Lilies.  So you may get the typical pink to ruby red or maybe something altogether different!
