Physostegia virginiana is found in many habitats across the Eastern part of North America, but is often associated with marshy or wet locales. The common name comes from a characteristic of the flowers; the stems stay in position when moved from side to side. Pink Manners was developed to produce pink flowers and a denser growth habit.
