Physostegia ‘Miss Manners’

Physostegia = ‘Miss Manners’

Physostegia virginiana ‘Miss Manners’ is a breakthrough for its clump-forming growth habit. Attractive, pure white flowers are set off nicely by its dark green foliage. The plant has good branching for secondary floral display. The stems are sturdy and will not flop as is typical of the species and ‘Summer Snow’. Its good behavior makes this Physostegia a great border plant that will not become a garden menace.
