Indian Pink Plant

Indian Pink plant is a clump-forming perennial with glossy green lance-shaped leaves on a wiry stem that grows erect. Each stem has a terminal, one-sided cluster of scarlet, tubular flowers, each ending in five yellow lobes. Despite its name, the exterior of this plant is dark red, and the interior is bright yellow. Only at the tip of the flower can you see the interior of the petals that form like a yellow star. 

It is commonly known as Spigelia Marilandica, Woodland Pinkroot, or Wormgrass; This plant is a member of the Logania family (Loganiaceae). There are several additional species in this genus. It is a herbaceous perennial plant that may grow around 2 to 3 feet tall. This plant consists of a relatively long blooming period. Early summer is the primary flowering season, with occasional reblooming in autumn.

It is a shade-loving perennial that can develop beneath leafy trees, such as oaks and maples, but it can also withstand full sun. It is an easy-to-care plant that favors daily watering in a moderate amount. There are no pruning requirements for this plant other than removing the stem that dies due to frost. This plant desires moist, organically rich, and well-drained soil.

Drought tolerance is high in this plant. It is a rare native perennial that thrives in lush, moist woods and along woody stream banks across the Southeastern United States. It tolerates humidity and warm temperatures best.


The Indian Pink plant's bright red blossoms provide an abundant supply of nectar 

These fragrant flowers, especially those blooming in early June, are noticeable from a distance and attract pollinators, including bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The bright red blossoms provide an abundant supply of nectar and thus attract ruby-throat hummingbirds. Even though it attracts pollinators, this plant is also resistant to deer and rabbits. There are several landscapes and medicinal uses for this native plant.

It is a great choice and beautiful addition to shaded border fronts and edges, woodland gardens, shade gardens, and wildflower gardens. When you use it in mass planting with other plants, it creates a striking visual impression.

You can plant it with Coralbells, Columbine, and Woodland phlox, guaranteeing hummingbirds flocking to your garden. In addition, the plant contains the alkaloid spigiline, which is most effective for therapeutic reasons when you take it in tiny doses. The plant's roots include narcotic and anthelmintic properties, which makes them particularly effective against worms and tapeworms in the digestive system.
