It's a pretty plant Aggie!
What a great looking plant, Aggie! Thanks for posting it! I may save this puzzle and look at it when I need something to obey me.
Thanks Gracie, I had one obedient plant, but it did not obey!It is wonderful to see some color in the Fall, I agree, roseheather.
Beautiful.I had some obedient plant and thought it was great, but when my husband's niece bought the property from us she tore out many of the perennials. : ( I know her mother always used annuals but perennials are so nice to see each spring and summer.
They are really lovely flowers Aggie!! and I love the title!
Happy to share it with you Adriana, loveydear and warbler. It does have some of the characteristics of a snapdragon with a smaller flower though.
Such a beautiful photo, Aggie!
a lovely plant i never seen it before
I've never seen or heard of this one either, thanks for posting a pic and some info on these!
No roseheather! I can vouch this is one of the few that the deer don't eat. Nice photo, Aggie!!
Thanks chickie and LJ - just checking that very question LJ - it says it gets its name because you can bend the flowers in any direction you like. It also confirms that "it is not so obedient in the garden".
Hi Aggie! I am glad to see you posting again! I never heard of or saw these flowers before. Why do they call them obedient plants?
Hi aggie, I used to have one of these plants. I thought it was kind of neat how you can slide the flowers from side to side.
May be a good idea roseh - I can vouch for that. I haven't seen any deer around here (fortunately or unfortunately?). Not sure if they like these or not. They grow about 3 to 4 feet tall.
Just bought a white one, on sale, maybe I should leave it in the pot, I'm on Vancouver Is. we do get a lot of rain. Guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens. Do the deer eat them?
Thanks lyndee, Toto and Brie - Yes, Toto, they do end up taking over the garden. Last year they did not come out though because we hardly had any rain.
Ah the rare breed 'Purplis obediensis' - not to be found any where in my garden!
Ah yes, the obedient plant which every year tries to disobediently take over my whole garden! Lovely blooms though.
If I had these obedient plants, I would tell them to stay bloom all year long! :)
