White Dragonflower Product Details

Botanical Name: Physostegia virginiana 'Alba'

Height: 24-36 inches.

Spacing: 18-20 inches.

Depth: Set at the same level as in pot when received, firm well and water thoroughly.

Spread: 15-18 inches.

Sun/Shade: Full sun to partial shade.

Color: Clear white.

Foliage: Dark green lanceolate leaves, 3-5 inches long with serrated margins.

Blooms: Late Summer to Fall.

Soil Requirements: Although adaptable to a wide range of soil types, it performs best in ones that do not dry out.

Growth Rate: Moderate once established, which takes approximately 3-4 weeks.

Pruning: Only to remove spent flower stems after flowering.

Comments: Unlike other Physostegias that tend to spread too rapidly, white does not run. This variety forms a clump, and is therefore perfect for the border and smaller gardens where it's 'good manners' can be appreciated and the long display of flowers on well branched stems enjoyed. Its strong upright lines provide an important vertical element in the garden. Very hardy (-40 degrees F.) and easy to grow. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to this flower. Deer resistant.

Love the Dragon
Reviewed By: Donna Gimarc (Rowlett, TX)
I love snapdragons. White dragonflower has a similar dragon face, but survived trouble spot of morning shade, harsh Texas afternoon sun, and an unusually snowy winter. Snaps did not. The dragon is spreading its wings. Beautiful white rows of blooms that last. Took a chance, and came up a winner.
