Obedient Plant

Obedient Plant is blooming in fields and sunny areas of Coffee Creek Park.

There are hybrids of this plant that are grown in gardens but it is a native wildflower.

When the flowers are bent they obediently remain in the same position, making them the perfect place for insects to take refuge in, closing the petals behind them like a door.
