Thickspike Gayfeather, also known as Prairie Blazingstar, is a good cut flower and attracts birds, hummingbirds and butterflies, including the rare Schinia gloriosa (Glorious Flower Moth) caterpillar. Plants grow to 4 feet tall and are tolerant of poor soils, drought, heat and humidity. Seeds can have some dormancy and should be planted in late fall, or provide cold stratification for 30-60 days prior to planting in spring.

Sowing: Direct sow in spring, pressing the seed lightly into the surface of the soil; water carefully to avoid disturbing the seed, and keep consistently moist until germination, which should occur within 7-10 days. 

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.


If you can’t find germinating and instructions online you can find them on the item page. Our goal is to save money everywhere we can so we can pass those savings on to you.
