Indian Pink

Description
Blooming in late spring to early summer, later than most wildflowers, this perennial adds a pop of rich color to a woodland garden. Despite its misleading name, the blooms are brilliant red and yellow, not pink, and their contrasting colors really pop in the garden. Gardeners love native plants because they're generally not troublesome plants, but this native wildflower is really, exceptionally tough. There are no specific soil requirements and it's very hardy. It also tolerates moisture well, just plant this one in part sun to dappled shade and watch it go. You'll get plenty of happy pollinators and brilliant color. Spigelia marilandica
