Height: 24-36" (60-90cm)

Features: Vigorous, spreading selection. Graceful spikes of tubular pink flowers which resemble snapdragons. Called "obedient" because blooms moved gently to one side will stay in that position.

Uses: Effective in borders and cutting gardens. Nice for larger patio containers. Cut flowers are long-lasting in fresh bouquets. Impressive in large groups.

Care: Plant in organic-rich, well-drained soil. Keep soil moist, watering freely in dry weather. Remove faded flowers for best display. May become invasive if left unchecked.
