After 12 years of trialing by US plantsman Darrell Probst, this unique selection of the US swamp native was finally available to gardeners. Unlike other so-called obedient plants, Physostegia 'Miss Manners' does not run around like other physostegias...or past presidents. Emerging from a dormant crown in spring, a cluster of green stems shoots upward to 30", each clothed by 3" long, narrow, waxy, dark green leaves. The sturdy clumps (unlike Physostegia 'Spring Snow') are topped all summer with pure white, snapdragon-like flowers which can be twisted around the stem and will remain where you put them...hence, the common name!
