I planted liatris bulbs May 15 outside in South Dakota. They are not showing above ground. We have had over 5 inches of rain since and not much heat or sun. Is it the weather? Is it too early?

I'm not an expert on growing Liatris, but i do have some that are in pots that i started from seed. I hope to set them out soon.I'm just trying to add some more reds and pinks to my garden. Liatris adds not only color, but also vertical accent for the back ground.

May 15th doesn't seem that long ago... maybe u can dig up one bulb and see how it's coming along.

Liatris blooms in late summer or even fall so it may take a little more time. They need sun to light shade and moist well-drained sandy soil.
Hope this helps you some...

It may also have to do with the depth that you planted them. They should only be planted about an inch or two down. If you planted them deeper they will take longer to grow and may even rot with excessive rain.
