overview
The Obedient Plant is an excellent choice for ponds and water gardens needing a boost of color and excitement. Once established, this hardy perennial will reward you with a gorgeous bouquet of showy floral spikes throughout the peak growing season. In addition to a flush of lavender blossoms, the Obedient Plant offers beautiful greenery with lance-shaped leaves that beautifully accentuate the vertical floral spikes.

This easy-to-care-for perennial is most notable for its large tubular flowers, reminiscent of Foxglove or even Snap Dragons. This resemblance is said to be a source of its alternate common name of "False Dragonhead." Its common name "Obedient Plant" reflects its relatively well-behaved growing habit that seems uncharacteristic for a member of the Mint Family. Flowers typically bloom from early summer to late fall.

For best growth, locate the Obedient Plant in sunny areas with only limited shade. Plant in a one-gallon container and submerge pot 2" below pond water surface. It is a great ornamental plant for container gardens, pond margins, floating planters, or for landscaping. Propagate in early spring by dividing established plants. Zones 3-12.

Approximate Purchase Size: 8" to 12"
