Common Name: Gayfeather
Common Name (Alternative): Blazing Star
A shorter cultivar that offers uniformity in height. Stock is totally from division, not seed. Characteristics of this selection are the same as the seed strain, L. s. 'Kobold', except that it grows only about half as tall.
In all, Liatris is a very strong vertical accent and 'Kobold' is one of the best selections available for border gardens. It is a staple item for cutting gardens; it adds a bright, vertical element to bouquets.
