Blazing Star - Kobold Gayfeather

Butterfly Atrracting Blooms June through September


The Liatris ‘Kobold Gayfeather’, Liatris spicata, has tall, lilac-rose spike-shaped flowers with a fluffy appearance and dark green foliage. With its lovely color and strong vertical effect, it provides an interesting architectural dimension.  ‘Kobold Gayfeather’ is well worth giving a spot in the garden!


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.


Liatris ‘Kobold’ looks great as a perennial background, with grasses or white blooming flowers such as Physostegia ‘Miss Manners’. 


* Dark green foliage
* Attract butterflies
* Thrives in full sun

when I bought this flower, the bulbs were somewhat moldy and smelly. I saved and planted the best, and tossed the others to the back row of the flower bed. I now have lovely purple spikes which bring me butterflies and honey bees, both where I planted and where I tossed the "bad" bulbs. I want to give my daughter in law some of these!!
