Plant Description

Native to the central United States and north on sandy soils and in open limestone glades and barrens, the Ontario Blazing Star has very narrow grass-like leaves and grows to 2 feet tall with stalks of 1/2 inch light rose pink mid-summer flowers. Not as delicate in aspect as L. microcephala, but not as coarse, either, as L. spicata. It's a good one for dry, very well drained, poor soil and full sun.
