Obedient Plant -- A Motel for Bugs

The Obedient plant is a stunning native wildflower that is currently blooming in Indiana. Its tall spikes of flowers look somewhat like snapdragons, as a result it also goes by the name of False Snapdragon.

The Obedient Plant's square stem places it in the mint family.

The other morning while at Coffee Creek marveling at these plants, I also discovered that the Obedient Plant also makes a good hotel for bugs.
