Physostegia virginiana ‘Red Beauty’

Obedient Plant

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.423.080

A selection of one of our native North American wildflowers. This forms an upright, bushy clump, bearing spikes of deep rosy-pink flowers from midsummer through the fall. Despite the name, flowers are not really a true red at all. Excellent for cutting. Spreads to form a big patch, something to keep in mind when placing this in the garden. Edge around the patch in spring to control, removing any surplus plants. Prefers rich, moist soil, and will tolerate wet conditions beside a stream or pond. Easily divided every 2 to 3 years in early spring. Clumps usually will need to be staked. Attractive to butterflies.
