These unique flowers open from the top down and bloom from June to September. It is a major butterfly and bee attractor.
Liatris ‘Kobold’ has a plant height of 2’ and a spread of 12-18” and should be planted in full sun in a well-drained area. It does prefer a bit more moisture than most Liatris, but do not over water.
