Physostegia virginiana 'Pink Manners' PP23482

Obedient plant or false dragonhead

Tubular flowers in shades of lavender-pink adorn this taller sport of 'Miss Manners' from midsummer through autumn. As expected, it holds an upright, clump forming habit with attractive medium green foliage and grows to about 36” tall and 20” wide. An adaptable and easy-to-grow native, the strong stems do not require staking.

Obedient plant Interesting Notes

Genus name comes from the Greek words physa meaning bladder and stege meaning covering, in reference to the calyces which inflate as they develop. Specific epithet is in reference to the State of Virginia which is part of the native range for this plant. Genus members are commonly called obedient plants because each individual flower will, upon being pushed in any one direction, temporarily remain in the new position as if it were hinged. Genus members are also commonly called false dragonhead because the flowers are suggestive of the flowers of dragonhead (Dracocephalum). - Missouri Botanical Garden

Darrell Probst has done it again with this taller sport of 'Miss Manners'. Still a neat, well-behaved clump former, but with lovely pink flowers that drive the bees crazy!
