Also known as false dragonhead, obedient plant is an interesting, showy plant for the rain garden. The common name refers to the individual flowers; when you lightly push one to face a different direction, it will remain pointed in that position.

Obedient plant can reach five feet tall and will thrive in average to moist soil with other tall plants. Its showy, pale-pink flowers will attract hummingbirds and bees.

Uses: rain gardens, hummingbirds, cut flowers, bees, deer tolerant
Bloom time: July - September

Height: 3 to 5 feet
Space: 14 to 18 inches

Sun: Full sun to light shade (too much shade may cause the plant to bend over)

Seed: Fresh seed harvested in July and sown soon thereafter will often germinate within 2 weeks. Otherwise, it would be best to give it at least 30 days cold, moist stratification or sow outdoors late November through February.
