Indian pink (Spigelia marilandica) has trumpet-shaped red flowers with a star-shaped yellow center and blooms in June.

Indian pink (Spigelia marilandica) has trumpet-shaped red flowers with a star-shaped yellow center and blooms in June. The oval-shaped leaves are bright green and are oppositely arranged on the stem. A native perennial to the Southeast, Indian pink is a smaller grower with a height of 1 to 2 feet and width of ½ to 1½ feet. It tolerates average, well-drained soil but will grow best in moist, rich soils. This deer-resistant plant is a great addition to a shady garden, and best of all, hummingbirds and butterflies love it.
