Physostegia Virginiana


By Meanie

Physostegia Virginiana (Physostegia virginiana (Obedient plant))

Having taken some photos of it, I've now discovered it's common name and the reason for it.
If you push the flowers of the Obedient Plant, they stay where you've pushed them to!
Just bought it today - £1.59!
