This hardy, late summer bloomer is an excellent specimen plant for along foundations or for cut-flower displays. Tall spikes of dense flowers cluster at the top of long stems. Also known as Dense Blazing Star, the beautiful pinkish-purple blooms of this perennial, tower above green grassy leaves. Plant in gritty, sandy soil with good drainage, in full sun to aid the development of the long tap root. This is a good host plant for Indian Paintbrush and the germination may be improved by chilling the seed at 40 degrees for a week before planting.
