This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our Licensees or Retail Sources.


The first Liatris of a new species bred for the garden. FEATHERMORE™ 'Lavender' was bred to be showy the first year in a container or border. It has multiple, branched, short flower spikes with lovely fat flower buds before erupting in feathery, lavender purple flowers. A different type of Liatris for the late summer garden or container. A favorite nectar source for Monarch butterflies. Liatris flowers make great cuts!
