Liatris spicata - Dense Blazingstar

Dense Blazingstar generally has a single long stem, with narrow lanceolate leaves growing on the lower portion. Flower heads grow closely along the upper stem.

This species is one of the showiest of all the prairie plants. A wet prairie with hundreds of Dense Blazingstars in bloom poking up above lower tallgrasses in late July and early August is a natural marvel.
