Pink Obedient Plant (Physostegia virginiana) has a broad native range that includes most of the Eastern and Midwestern US. It thrives in moist soils and full or partial sun. A member of the mint family, it is a rapid creeper that spreads by rhizomes. This habit will help deter weeds and easily fill in large spaces of your yard with flowers that birds and pollinators will love. Pollinators, especially hummingbirds, flock to these towering beauties. These stunners provide nice height to gardens and are rain garden-approved. Also called False Dragonhead because of their resemblance to snapdragons. Pink Obedient Plant flower stems can be twisted and hold their shape temporarily, earning their ‘obedient’ title.
