I WANT this flower !
« on: September 02, 2013, 18:49 »
This fine flower appeared in a friends garden, and I want it!


Can anyone tell me what its name is and how to propagate it?

Cheers and thanks in anticipation,   Tony.

I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

Thanks for that Mum, it certainly looks similar but its less than two foot in height.  Those on the web are tall, or very very tall.

Now I have a name I can search for how to save the seeds.   Cheers,   Tony.

Yup Liatris spicata  :)

You do see them in the herbaceous perennial sections of garden centres, but they are cheaper to buy as bulbs  ;)  They'll be in the garden centres around January when the summer flowering bulbs arrive.

This is my fave web shop for bulbs. Brilliant value if you want a decent quantity of something  :)
