Brief Season of Liatris Spicata

For a few weeks the lavender colored blooms of Liatris spicata attracted all sorts of insects to my back yard garden.  Butterflies and bees particularly enjoyed it.  I grew these plants from corms then transplanted them to my garden during early spring.  They grew rapidly and required little care. Little did I know that the field across the road would be full of Liatris spicata blooms!  I may just dig some of those plants up and bring them to my garden next year.  

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope your summer is going well. 
It's been a busy, busy one for me- I need some time off to catch my breath!


  1. The butterflies are gorgeous! Take care!

  2. Gorgeous captures of the Swallowtails. Lovely images, enjoy your day!
