Indian Pink (Spigelia marilandica)

 

Indian Pink: TN Nursery customers who adore hummingbirds know how Spigelia marilandica, or Indian Pink, is an underutilized species to attract their winged friends. This native perennial herbaceous flower, which performs beautifully in the warmer USDA growing zones, produces tubular flowers in early summer--the sweet little birds cannot resist them.

 

Besides being a hummingbird attractor, Indian Pink also attracts pollinator insects like butterflies, moths, and bees to help promote a healthier garden ecosystem.

 

Indian Pink originated in the forests of the western Appalachian region but works well across many growing regions. It enjoys shade to partial shade; the species prefers loose, moist soil with good drainage.

 

However, it is also a very resilient species and can tolerate short dry spells--you might need to water it during weeks that lack rainfall. Besides keeping the soil moist and providing shade, Indian Pink is a fuss-free addition to any shady yard.

 

You might also hear gardeners refer to this species by the following names:

 

  •      Pinkroot
  •      Wormgrass
  •      Woodland pinkroot

 

The Casual Elegance of Indian Pink

 

Indian Pink is a beautiful flowering herb plant with vivid coloring and an upright posture. The plants form in small- to medium-sized attractive clumps. The green-brown deciduous stem grows to between two- to three feet high.

 

The leaves of Indian Pink are dark green and pretty, even after the flowers finish blooming. The leaves are oval and grow in about seven pairs per stem. They grow as large as four inches long, providing a shady respite for small woodland creatures in the summer heat.

 

Indian Pink flowers grow erect and in small clusters of attractive tube-shaped flowers. Each cluster can contain as many as twelve blossoms. The flowers are scarlet to deep red with a bright yellow middle--the contrasting colors create a striking star pattern.

 

Where to Plant Indian Pink

 

Indian Pink is a late-spring to early-summer bloomer. Plant it anyplace you need to punch up the color during June. It works beautifully in a natural garden, shade garden, shaded rock garden, or as a border planting.
