Liatris spicata 'Kobold' HP/BB
Tall, stiff stems end in fluffy spikes of purple flowers in mid to late summer. The buds open at the base first and gradually fill out all the way up the stem. At the base is a rosette of slender foliage. Great for cutting as last for ages and look attractive dried as well. The bees love these and there is an endless procession collecting the nectar. For a sunny or partially shaded spot in rich well-drained soil. Ht to 50cm S 35cm.
