    Physostegia virginiana While this plant is a native, it isn’t a well behaved one. Spreading by underground stolons this thug can rapidly fill a flower-bed and take years of diligent efforts to eradicate. I’d plant this beauty off in a bed alone, and treat it like mint.

    hmmmm….but if it was foxglove wouldn’t the flowers all have thin short pedicels? Looks more like chelone (turtlehead) to me
