Fire Pink Plant 

True to their name, the fire pink plant (Silene virginica L.) is covered with bright, hot pink star-shaped flowers from April through August, depending on your zone. They’re native to the eastern half of the country, but these eye-catching members of the carnation family thrive from area 4 to zone 8. Their petals notched at the tips, and the leaves grow anywhere from 0.5” to 4” long. These plants grow from 6” to 18” tall in a vertical form, with branches that grow upward from the crown. 

 

 Fire pinks usually spread about a foot and make excellent border plants. They prefer well-drained soil and don’t perform as well in water-logged areas. They’ll grow best in full to part sun, but gardeners report success with them in part shade, as well. Fire pinks naturally occur in places from grasslands to forests and thrive in rocky soil, so they are adaptable to much modern landscaping uses. They look great planted in groupings for hummingbird or rock gardens. They attract pollinators, as well, including butterflies and bees. 

 

 The fire pink plant is a member of the carnation family and is quickly grown from seed or by transplanting divisions. To keep plants healthy, divide them in the spring after the soil has begun to thaw but before growth begins. The versatile fire pink plant will grace your garden for years to come.
