Morning everyone 👋 Another damp day. Hopefully won’t be too long before this flowers. Planted it last year so will be interesting to see it flower for the first time. Another potentially invasive plant, named it would seem by someone with a sense of humour! #obedientplant #flowerbud

Morning, I had totally forgotten that I ever bought this plant, wasn't obedient at all 😂 I couldn't keep it alive!!

Morning Jason ☕️ Oh heck! So it lacks obedience all round! Must just depend upon what mood it’s in as to how it misbehaves! 😯😂 Watch this space…!! 😬🥴 @hebelover

It’s not one I’d come across before either Julie. It grows to around 3ft tall and looks like a snapdragon. This one is already disobedient in that it’s already about 4.5 foot tall! @juliesgarden

Morning- I think I have this… possibly pulled some out - thought they were weeds 🤔

Morning Sharon…must admit it would be an easy one to confuse with a weed. Had I not known where I had planted it, I would have mistaken it for a weed too @sharonhayden

….or then again…maybe it’s just a weed by another name!! We’ll see! 😂 @sharonhayden

Cataloguing - Obedient plant? 🤔 Lets hope so after my recent disastrous purchase of two Japanese Anemone! 🙈 #obedientplant

Its obedient when it flowers Angela, you can turn the flower heads and they stay put! 😀 @italydiva

Ahh...I knew there had to be a reason. I was curious about the name so looked it up Graham. It said they can be invasive. I didn’t think that quite matched the “obedient” name!! 😂 @gardengimp

@italydiva I didn't know they could be invasive 😮 I've got a variegated leaved one but could do with more of it, its hard to get hold of. Hope it lives up to its reputation! But with some things in gardening I have to be careful what I wish for 😄

It’s funny isn’t it Graham, things don’t always follow what we are led to believe. Some sources mention it, others don’t! Just a waiting game I guess 🤷‍♀️ Mine’s not variegated but that does sound lovely 😊 @gardengimp

@italydiva maybe it gets thuggish in the prairies? I have 'Vivid' as well in a fairly dry spot, but our wet weather probably averages out the conditions. All part of the fun! 😃

Indeed! I shall just wait and watch with interest 😊 🤔 @gardengimp
