Obedient Flower – Flower of the Day- August 29th

The Obedient flower is an overlooked flower of boggy areas. It has an attractive spike of lavender flowers, but isn’t as showy as its sometimes companion the Cardinal flower with its showy spike of red. Why is it called obedient? Well, you can grab an individual bloom, twist it around and it will stay where you placed it; obedient to your wishes.

this specimen is part of my Bog in a Barrel garden, and in bloom at the same time are other tiny native flowers – asters, and a barely visible Water Horehound.
