Indian Pink 

The Indian Pink, otherwise known as the Spigelia marilandica, is a plant found throughout the greater southeastern United States. It is a rare wildflower to find among the regions. It grows primarily in rich woodland and wooded stream banks. 

  The Indian Pink is a beautiful clumping plant. It is an herbaceous perennial, living greater than two years. This means that the plant will provide significant beauty for a home or company for a long time. The plant does grow to a height of twelve to eighteen inches in total. 

 The Indian Pink has beautiful features.

Its leaves are rich green, in a unique oval shape. There are no leaf stalks for a distraction from the beauty. The flower is a one-sided, upward-facing beauty. The flowers are red and tubular, becoming more confined as going northward. After this confinement, however, there are five pieces of the flower flaring out in brilliant yellow colors. 

  This flower blooms in the warmest part of the year. More specifically, the blooming period for the Indian Pink is from late spring from May to early June. It is a tropical plant, so it enjoys the heat and warmth.  The Indian Pink is a relative rarity in its genus of plants. Most others in its genus are tropical but are not perennials. They are rather annuals. This makes the Indian Pink a wonderful treat for years. 

The Indian Pink is a fairly easy plant to manage.

It will continue coming back as it is perennial as aforementioned. It also does not mind the heat and will grow in shade. Finally, this plant does have a long period of blooming, being pollinated by hummingbirds. The plant does require moderately moist soil that is drained.

This is my first time ordering from this company, and I am very pleased with their communication and how quickly the order was filled. The bare root plants arrived in good shape, and they are in the ground. We are looking forward to seeing them grow and bloom!

First time ordering here so took a chance and had a prompt delivery. I received 3 well established roots in a bag, kept them watered for about a week before planting and they have all 3 sprouted so I'm happy with this company.
