Daisy or sunflower family.

Flowers from August to October.

Flower heads are purple to pink-purple and thistle-like, each composed of many tubular disk flowers. Flowering begins at the top of the stem and progresses downward. The flower heads are not one-sided as are the blooms of Liatris pauciflora.

The leaves of the Liatris chapmanii are hairy.
