Indian pink

Spigelia marilandica

A long flowering woodland perennial with unique flowers that attract pollinators — especially hummingbirds. This hardy native perennial will seed itself into a colony in just a few years.

Adaptability makes Indian pink an excellent landscape plant, which grows in a variety of soil and light conditions from full shade to full sun and everything in between. It performs best in partial to full shade and moist soil. Even in heavy shade, Indian pink blooms prolifically. The more sun plants are grown in the more attention to watering they will require, but they can be grown in dry shade gardens.

Native to 17 states from Texas to the Carolinas and from Illinois to Florida.
