* Liatris cylindracea, Slender Blazing Star 

~These aren't thriving. If they pick up I'll include them in the fall sale~

Liatris cylindracea

Slender Blazing Star 

  • Full Sun
  • Average to dry soil
  • 12" to 16" tall, 6" to 10" wide
  • Summer blooms 
  • Native to Ontario, Garden and Dry Meadow settings

Grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery https://www.prairiemoon.com/liatris-cylindracea-dwarf-blazing-star-prairie-moon-nursery.html 

The smallest of the Liatris species I’ve planted, this species is the least capable of coping with competition but is very well suited to dry, low nutrient soils and hot, sunny locations. Would do well along side Prairie Smoke, Lance Leaf Coreopsis and Pearly Everlasting. 

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.

The Online Plant Nursery will re-open for orders on Tuesday, May 17th

Pickups will begin the following week.

I will be offering plug sized plants for $1.25 each or 5 for $5. 

I'm in the process of adding species that I expect to offer this spring to the listings since they are starting to germinate and I'm starting to get an idea of which will be available in abundant quantities.

Since the list is much longer this year I've added several categories to help narrow down your options based on a variety of criteria.

For those who have already adopted seedlings, planting instructions can be found here.
