Obedient Plant Seeds

No wonder there are warning about obedient plants becoming invasive, they produce a ton of seeds. Today I cut the stalks off, to save the seeds and also keep the plant under control.

This is a plant I picked up at a plant sale for a few bucks, before I knew I had them growing in the north garden and also by the vegetable garden. Although this seems to be a shorter variety.

Each pocket, where a flower bloomed, contains four seeds. Each stalk might have 20-100 flowers, thats a lot of seeds. Now the question is do I want more plants and where do I want them.

Is this a white one? I have the light purple ones also. Mine are relatively tall on the side of the house. I must say I pulled a lot out this spring. They are invasive.
