Gayfeather plants are great in perennial borders, cutting gardens, native plant gardens, butterfly gardens, naturalized areas, prairies, or meadows. Interestingly, it flowers from the top down! Prune back any remaining stems from the previous year in early spring.

During the growing season, you may also apply a light application of organic low nitrogen fertilizer on top of the soil. During times of drought, make sure you water Gayfeather Blazing Star weekly until the soil is completely moist.

To sow Gayfeather seeds, start indoors using trays and a sterile potting mix. Gently press seeds into the surface of the soil, and lightly cover the wildflower seeds. Keep the flower seeds moist until germination and transplant outdoors after the danger of frost has passed.

To sow Gayfeather wildflower seeds outdoors after frost season has passed, prepare the soil and spread flower seeds. Rake seeds into the soil and cover no more than 1/16 of an inch with loose, fine soil. Keep wildflower seeds moist until germination.
