Obedient Plant
Pyhsostegia virginiana
Pink Snapdragon-like flowers grow atop a spike of this native plant and usually last for a few weeks. Grows well in sun or light shade and in moist thickets to medium and drier meadows and prairies. Bloomtime is late summer and reaches a height of 1'-4'. Looks nice when planted with Purple Coneflower, Stiff Goldenrod and Sweet Black-eyed Susan.


Prairie Phlox

Phlox pilosa
The bright pink flowers that cluster at the top of this plant are a wonderful addition to any prairie. The slender, spreading and hairy stems grow 1'- 2' tall and hold stiff opposite leaves. Flowering time is May to June (and sometimes fall) and it does best in dry to mesic soil conditions. Pollination is achieved by long-tongued insects such as butterflies.

It blooms mid-summer and is native to moist prairies but will adapt to medium soil conditions. Attracts butterflies and looks good with spotted Joe Pye Weed, Boneset or Blue Flag.
