Physostegia virginiana are native to North America and are found extensively across the region. A lovely plant, the flowers of which resemble those of an Antirrinhum. The common name arises from the fact that individual flowers can be gently pushed to a different orientation and will stay there for some time
The plant prodcues tubular, two-lipped, snapdragon like, pink to pale lilac flowers in upright terminal spikes. The attractive foliage is narrow, lance shaped, sharp-toothed. Seed capsules can be dried for use as dried flowers. Use in a mixed planting, or in groups. Can easily be grown in a pot or other container. Use a good quality compost. Feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year.
