This amazing prairie native is the most stunning of the blazing star family. The giant 4' tall stems, clothed with narrow green leaves, are topped starting in mid-July with massive spikes of bottle-brush-like flower spikes. This is one of the best blazing stars for making an impact in the perennial border. L. pycnostachya prefers a moist rich soil for best results.
