Obedient Plant (Physostegia virginiana), also known as false dragonhead brings a profusion of flower spikes to the mid-summer garden. These tall bloomers bring a vertical element to your garden and attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
Varieties include white, pink and purple shades. Shown above is “Vivid” – a beautiful purple hue.
Obedient plant thrives in full sun to part shade and is drought tolerant. Rich, moist soil can cause it to be aggressive.
Once established obedient plant will naturalize and spread underground. Shoots are easily transplanted in the spring to establish Obedient Plant in new areas of your garden.
Easy to grow with no pest problems Obedient Plant is a sturdy and reliable bloomer from mid-summer through fall. And it is beautiful as a cut flower.
I love to see where Obedient plant will pop up each spring. They do seem to end up in unlikely places.
