How to take care of Liatris spicata purple x 20
Plant in a most but well-drained soil in a sun or light shade position. will benefit if you add peat at the time of planting and mulch in spring. Improve the soil with some organic fertiliser on top of the soil. Water well after planting and again in dry weather. Remove withered flower heads regularly to prolong the flowering. Because die back each year its best to mark the spot. Divide every 3 years in autumn or spring and re-plant only the healthiest firm looking tubers.
If conditions prevent planting directly into borders (if soil is frozen or waterlogged), best to plant Liatris in pots, watered sparingly and grown on in a cool position until you can plant them outside.
