So I am actually pretty amazed this little guy is coming up still. I have had this flower for about 3-4 years now but as a very young gardener at the type I knew nothing about plant location so I just planted it in a stupid spot. Why I say that because at this current location it gets about 2-3 hours of sun very early AM and evening sun before the sun sets. I am interested in moving this if it would be wise to put it in more sun. If anyone knows what this is and can provide me with some details that would be great!

Thanks

I've had good results growing Obedient Plants in part shade. They get several hours of morning sun then dappled shade the remainder of the day.

Physostegia has squarish stems, which you may have noticed. I think that plant looks very happy. Unless it's in the way of other plans you have, or behind something taller that is hiding it, I wouldn't move it. I've had pink ones before which I wasn't crazy about since the flowers got lost in the shadows and were much smaller than those on your plant. White flowers are the best for shade, IMO. They show in the gloom and glow in the dark. Looks great!
