The Obedient Plant, also known as False Dragonhead (Physostegia virginiana), is a flowering plant in the mint family, Lamiaceae. It is native to North America, where it is distributed from eastern Canada to northern Mexico.

The plant gets its name from the fact that the individual flowers can be gently bent and will hold their position for a short time. However, this "obedience" is temporary, and the flowers will eventually return to their upright position.

Obedient plant is a herbaceous perennial that typically grows to 1-3 feet tall. It has square stems, lanceolate leaves, and tubular flowers that are pink, lavender, or white. The flowers bloom in late summer and fall and are attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees.

Obedient plant is a relatively easy plant to grow and care for. It prefers full sun to part shade and moist, well-drained soil. It is tolerant of drought and poor soil conditions. Obedient plant can be propagated by division or seed. However, it is important to note that obedient plant can be invasive in some areas, so it is important to be aware of its potential to spread before planting it in your garden.
