Obedient Plant (Physostegia Virginiana Pink) seeds are easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun. A recommended method of sowing 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 the Obedient Plant seedlings to the strongest plant. Obedient Plant 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.
