Scientific Name: Physostegia virginiana Pink Manners

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.
