Plant Description

Bearing resemblance to Liatris, this nativar shines in the fall with its tall flower wands densely packed with golden yellow blooms that pollinators adore. It is a highlight of the Lurie Garden in Chicago, but was originally discovered in SW Oklahoma by Steve Bieberich of Sunshine Nursery.  

This nativar is very tolerant of heat and dry soils.
