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'

$5.99

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.

THIS PLANT IS WINTER DORMANT.
