Obedient Plant (Physostegia virginiana)
Thrives in wetter soils. Great to fill in large spots as it is a rhizomatous plant, so its root system will spread fairly quickly. You will notice its flower spikes will remain in whichever direction you point them in, thus the name Obedient Plant. Like all members of the mint family, it produces copious amounts of nectar. Blooming late summer and well into fall.
