Blazing star, also known as Liatris spicata, is a perennial plant related to the Asteraceae family. It's native to North America and can be found in various habitats, including prairies, meadows, and open woods.

Blazing Star's Growth

The plant grows to a height of 2-5 feet and has a slender, erect stem with narrow, lance-shaped leaves that grow up to 12 inches long.

Blazing Star Plant Is Hardy and Spring Blooming

In midsummer, the plant produces tall spikes of tiny purple or white flowers up to 12 inches long and arranged in a dense, cylindrical shape. The flowers bloom from the top of the spike downwards, giving the plant a unique appearance.

It is famous for pollinator gardens because its nectar-rich flowers attract butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects. It is also an excellent choice for cut flowers and can be used in fresh and dried arrangements.

Overall, the blazing star is a striking and hardy plant that adds a unique touch to any garden or landscape.
It is a hardy perennial plant that produces beautiful purple or white spike-shaped flowers. It is an excellent addition to any garden and is relatively easy to grow.

Blazing Star Plant Thrives in Sun and Well Drain Soil

It prefers full sun and well-drained soil. It can tolerate some shade but will bloom best in full sun. The plant is adaptable to a wide range of soil types but prefers slightly acidic soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.5.

When planting, choose a spot that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily.

Caring For Blazing Star


Once established, Blazing Star is drought-tolerant but will benefit from regular watering during dry spells. In early spring and late summer, fertilize the plant with a balanced fertilizer once or twice yearly.

It can be planted in flower beds, mixed borders, or meadow gardens. It pairs well with other sun-loving perennials such as black-eyed Susan, coneflower, and goldenrod.


Blazing Star Plants are majestic, and many people love to cut them and put them in a vase in the house. They grow ideally in a half-shade, half-sunrise environment. Since they grow up so tall, they are frequently used at the back of gardens to define the back edge.

Exceedingly hardy plants do well in almost any soil with adequate drainage. This colorful plant blooms from July to August, which makes it ideal because many spring and early summer bloomers tend to look quite drab after their early blooming period.

One ideal aspect is that it is impervious to all common plant diseases. It is also a magnet for bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, so it is an excellent asset to your garden.

Most people purchase tubers from a garden shop, although they can be propagated with seeds. Blazing Star Plants can be spaced as close as 6 inches apart, and many people love to grow three or four in a decorative pot.

An excellent garden idea is to make a complete path of it in your backyard using decorative pots.

Another advantage is that if you have many deer around, they tend not to be interested in eating these plants. It should be noted that the plant also has several medicinal qualities for humans.
