Physostegia virginiana 'Rosea'
Physostegia virginiana 'Rosea'
Physostegia virginiana 'Rosea' is a herbaceous perennial with toothed oval leaves and spikes of rose-pink tubular flowers in summer, often continuing on into autumn. Flowers open from the base of the spike upwards. Ideal conditions for this plant are sun or partial shade and a moist, well drained soil, however it can be very invasive, spreading both by underground runners and by self-seeding, so avoid planting in rich soil or adding fertiliser.
