Description

Transform your garden into a vision of elegance with the Alba Gayfeather. This striking perennial, known for its feathery white spikes, adds a touch of sophistication to any landscape. As a member of the Liatris spicata family, the Alba variety boasts unique, upright flower spikes that stand tall and proud, creating a captivating display.

Growing Zones: Ideal for USDA hardiness zones 3 to 9, the Alba Gayfeather thrives in a variety of climates. This versatile perennial can withstand colder winters while thriving in warmer summer temperatures.

Basic Care Tips:

  1. Sunlight: Plant your Alba Gayfeather in a location that receives full sunlight. These sun-loving perennials will reward you with the best blooms when exposed to at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day.

  2. Soil Conditions: Provide well-draining soil for your Alba Gayfeather. This perennial prefers soil that is not waterlogged, preventing root rot and ensuring optimal growth. A slightly acidic to neutral pH is ideal.

  3. Watering: While Alba Gayfeather is drought-tolerant once established, consistent watering is crucial during the initial stages of growth. Water regularly, especially during dry spells, but be cautious not to overwater.

  4. Spacing: Allow enough space between plants to promote good air circulation. This not only helps prevent diseases but also ensures each plant has ample room to showcase its tall, spiky blooms.

  5. Fertilization: Apply a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer in the spring to encourage robust growth and vibrant blooms. Follow the recommended dosage on the fertilizer package for optimal results.

  6. Winter Care: Mulch around the base of your Alba Gayfeather in late fall to protect the roots from extreme winter temperatures. This extra layer of insulation helps the plant endure colder climates.
