Physostegia virginiana, also known as obedient plant, is a herbaceous perennial native to North America. It is a member of the mint or Lamiaceae family and is known for its spikes of showy, tubular flowers that bloom in shades of pink, purple, or white. The flowers are distinctive in that they are hinged at the base, allowing them to be positioned and held in a particular direction. This characteristic has led to the plant's common name, obedient plant.

Physostegia virginiana typically grows to be 2 to 4 feet tall and has a clumping habit, with leaves that are opposite and lance-shaped, and up to 6 inches long. The flowers are produced in spikes and bloom from late summer to early fall. The plant is attractive to pollinators, including bees and butterflies, and is an important source of nectar for these insects.

Obedient plant will do well in wet to medium soils in full sun to partial shade. This species is hardy and has a long bloom time, making it a valuable addition to any garden or landscape.
