Physostegia virginiana, commonly called Obedient Plant or False Dragonhead is best planted in rich, moist soil in full sun or light shade.  Physotegia virginiana has 1 inch tubular flowers tightly clustered in long spikes at the top of stems and grows wild in moist ground in prairies, edges of glades and along streams.  Physotegia virginana is named obedient plant because the flowers when moved to the side remain in that position. 
      Physostegia virginiana is not as invasive as many of the other obedient plants sold commercially.
