Are you looking for a late-season bloomer to add to your garden? Look no further than Physostegia virginiana, also known as the obedient plant or false dragonhead. This native North American species belongs to the mint family and produces stiff, squared stems that can grow up to 4 feet tall. Its long, dense spikes of lipped, pinkish flowers resemble snapdragons and can be manipulated to stay in place, earning the obedient plant its name. It thrives in fertile soils and can require staking in its tall growth. While aggressive and dominating, it can add a pop of color to your garden with cultivars ranging from white to bright pink and earning awards like the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. Consider Physostegia virginiana for its unique appearance and hardiness.
