White Obedient Plant Seeds   

Obedient Plant (Physostegia Virginiana White) – Many people refer to Obedient Plant as False Dragonhead. White Obedient Plant makes an excellent cut flower and looks wonderful in a naturalized landscape or meadow-type setting. Propagation is from Obedient Plant seeds, and once it is established, it can be aggressive with spreading stolons. Even though White False Dragonhead can spread aggressively, the shallow roots are easy to pull out, and it can easily be divided in early spring or late fall. Both hummingbirds and butterflies enjoy the nectar from the Obedient Plant flower.

Obedient Plant seeds are easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun. A recommended method of sowing Obedient Plant flower seed is to sow the seed in the fall after several frosts have occurred. The flower seed will lie dormant on the ground until spring temperatures warm. Sow the seed in groups of 3 – 4 spaced 18 – 24 inches apart. Thin Obedient Plant seedlings to the strongest plant. False Dragonhead care includes dividing the plant every 2 – 3 years to control the rhizomatous root system (spreading). Deadheading will also encourage more blooms and also slow down the re-seeding.
