I'll try again

Liatrises have become popular additions to many floral designs. The flowers are members of the Compositae family, along with such notable blooms as chrysanthemums, cornflowers, asters and zinnias.

Vase Life
7-10 days.

Care and Handling
Unlike most flowers, which open from the bottom to the top of the spike, the topmost flowers of liatris open first and blooming progresses downward. Avoid purchasing spikes with more than three-quarters of the blooms already opened.

Design Uses
A strong verticle line that is best used in contemporary arrangements. Is suitable for drying but a sealant should be used.

Colors: Purple and shades of lavender, although pink, rose and white hues are gaining popularity.
