Spigelia marilandica, also known as the Indian pink, is a woodland wildflower that will bring subtle form and colour to your garden.
Unusual and very desirable, Spigelia is not usually available in the UK, and we're delighted to be able to offer it to you. It's a native of the US and thrives in woodland and other moist areas in dappled shade, although will be quite happy in sun as long as it is regularly watered.
The narrow, oval leaves are complimented with tubular, crimson flowers that burst open with a dazzling star at the end. These can reach around 5cm (2in) long and are bright crimson on the outside with a striking neon-yellow interior.
Hardy to -5°C, the Indian Pink is best grown in a pot where it can be moved under cover during spells of freezing winter weather. It's easy to grow too, being quite undemanding, and makes a perfect plant for any garden or indeed any gardener!
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant straight out. Plants are deciduous, so no leaves October - April
