Physostegia virginiana 'Rosea'
An interesting and quirky plant, if the flower head is moved to a new position, it will remain where placed- if only my dog was as obedient.-Intense pink flowers in summer through to autumn. 75cm

Physostegia virginiana 'Rosea'


False dragonhead, the Obedient plant is as showy as it is hardy. This fully hardy perennial boasts its intense colour from mid -summer through to early autumn.

The spreading perennial has mid green foliage. The large leaves are lance-shaped, sharply toothed and curved like a spoon. 

The tubular, deep purple or bright lilac-pink flowers have inflated mouths, and are borne on tall racemes. If these flowers are moved on the stalks, they will remain in their new position; this is why it is commonly known as the Obedient Plant. These captivating flowers are very attractive to bees and ideal for cut flowers.

P.Rosea is ideally positioned in a situation where it has full sun with reliably moist soil though it will cope in most soils as long as they are not water- logged.

Physostegia virginiana 'Rosea' is also marketed as Physostegia  Rose Queen.
