USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Details
16-18" x 15-16" wide. An improved form of our native Obedient Plant, this summer blooming perennial was bred for its compact habit, long bloom time and self-cleaning flower spikes. It grows in a variety of garden conditions and is an excellent choice for rain gardens and containers. Physostegia virginiana 'Crystal Peak White' won Europe's prestigious Fleuroselect Gold Medal. Cut back to just above ground level in mid-spring. Deadheading during the growing season will extend blooming. Fertilize in fall. Spreading slowly by rhizomes, it can be divided every three to four years.

Planting Guides
Physostegia (Obedient Plant) - a genus of North American wildflowers.

Preferred growing conditions
  • Plant in most soil types including clay. Physostegia prefers to be planted in a full to partial sun locations.
  • Mulch with common mulching materials except of moisture climates where plants should remain un-mulched.
  • Obedient plant likes moderately to moist soil conditions so regular irrigation is needed to establish and maintain plants in arid climates. Rainfall is generally sufficient in moister Eastern climates.
  • Deadheading will help to keep the plants blooming longer into the late summer. Clip off primary flower spike to encourage new flower buds to form lower on the flowering stem.
  • Fertilize lightly in the fall with a half and half blend of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost.
  • Special comments
  • Divide in mid-spring if plants are spreading too widely and crowding neighboring plants.
