I mean, this thing is huge! Who knew that the liatris would multiply like this?
My second whiskey barrel looks totally different. It has the new orange coneflower 'Hot Papaya' that I bought in June. Unfortunately 'Hot Papaya' finished blooming weeks ago and I cut it back hoping for a second flush of color. The tall dahlia is another 'Myrtle's Folly'. I had to tie the dahlias to the railing as they, too, were falling over from the wind. I used fish line so you can't see the ties. One thing I really dislike is seeing plants tied up!
I also have liatris planted in the deck entrance planters.
So if you have tried liatris and could not get it to succeed, you may have better luck if you try it in containers.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
