Lori - Baker, MT - on August 29, 2018
This is my first year in Eastern Montana. Spring was very long in arriving making it late June until I could plant. I'm very impressed how strong the plants are with the weather conditions that we had. The Clematis, Hosta & Heuchera have all been beaten up by wind & heat this summer after getting through the cooler wet late spring weather and the plants are still surviving. The Liatris seems to be so hardy, and a beautiful plant but it is just starting to bloom. It's such a vibrant healthy looking plant with the deepest, brightest fushia/deep lavendar color starting to open - I love this plant. I also love the Peacock Orchids - so beautiful and elegant with good height that blend well with the Liatris. The Stargazer Lilies have grown well and are healthy and have buds on but have not opened yet - I'm looking forward to seeing them. I'm finding which plants do their best in the heat and which ones need a little more shade. I'm looking forward to next year and more bulbs from Longfield Gardens - thank you.

I received 24 of these as a "Freebie" from Longfield Gardens. They grew very tall and sturdy, alongside various ornamental grasses, Bo Bo hydrangea, purple salvia, and purple peonies. Their flowers are a deep purple which looks beautiful in this sunny bed. They last for a month, at least, then dry them, and they will last for years.

The Liatris were gorgeous, taller than others Ive had.

This was my first year for a butterfly garden. Liatris bulbs worked out great. Healthy bulbs and grew a little bit taller than I thought but the color of purple added great color.
Mark C. - Gum Spring, VA - on June 07, 2018
I placed several orders where I received 24 Free Liatris Blazing Star bulbs. Often Free gifts don't amount to much, but all of these bulbs have done beautifully. They are very healthy and happy plants.
Lesley Hendricks - Terrell, TX - on June 14, 2017
This is the second year I have ordered the butterfly flowers, the color is amazing, once the flower blooms I have butterflies, hummingbirds & bees celebrating its beauty along with my neighbors & myself! Thanks Longfield Gardens!
Lisa Aiken - NC - on May 27, 2015
These are amazing and beautiful. I planted them in three very different locations, from nearly full shade to full sun and one spot with poor clay soil and it has grown well in all of these spots! They do seem to want a few hours of sun at least.
