Brilliant red, upward-facing trumpets cluster atop stiff stems each cradling a yellow 5-pointed star. It appears as though nature designed individual vases to hold each star. This striking SE United States native is most at home in the bright woodland or shaded border.

Spigelia is a long-lived perennial and provides stunning color for the summer garden. Indian Pink will flower in early summer then sporadically throughout the growing season. Lush foliage is bright green. Hummingbirds love this beauty too! Will readily self-sow.
