Liatris Spicata

Bought this yesterday to replace my Monarda - which has completely vanished since planted last early sign at all!
I do like the other name of this, Gayfeather. Sounds very cottagey and sweet.

Crikey, that should look very pretty, when in flower, Klahanie! I can just imagine it. It'll be fab for your wildlife. I'm pleased you said it's more showy than the Monarda. Goodness knows where that has gone!!!! It's simply vanished. No sign of anything at all.

Looks nice Kate have never grown this, I'm not sure if ive lost my monarda it is not showing but can see surface roots and possibly tiny speck of leaves, need to check it again :-)

Thanks, Jane. I was looking around the GC for a while on Saturday, trying to find a replacement..
I wanted something that'd flower for a time.
Yes, I can't see any sign of my Monarda either. It's like I never planted it. Let me know if you have any joy. Fingers crossed.
