This Hard-Working Perennial is a Butterfly Magnet
There's something about liatris that butterflies just can't resist. It could be the flower's fuzzy texture, the striking amethyst color or its wand-like shape. Maybe the nectar or pollen are particularly tasty. Whatever the reason, planting liatris in your garden is a sure way to attract all sorts of butterflies, from painted ladies and spangled fritillaries to swallowtails and monarchs. And as you'll see in this video, butterflies aren't the only fans of liatris.
