The Obedient Plant (Physostegia virginiana) literally knows its place, tending to stay physically arranged as positioned by the gardener’s guiding hand. A member of the mint family, the Obedient Plant boasts ostentatious flower spikes laden with elegant tubular blossoms that range in color from a delicate pink to vibrant purple. One of the latest blooming prairie native wildflowers, this perennial is a perfect provider of nectar for pollinators in the autumn months when options are limited.

The Obedient Plant grows about 4 feet tall and blooms from late summer to well into the fall (Aug-Nov). Tolerant of both drought and poor drainage, it is easily established and maintained in moist soils and full to partial sun conditions. Obedient Plant is found within the central and eastern United States and the temperate parts of Canada. As with other members of the mint family, this species can become invasive in home gardens if neglected.
