Indian Pink, Pinkroot

Spigelia marilandica - Indian Pink, Pinkroot


Spigelia marilandica is a native to Southeastern US, including Texas. Pinkroot is a woodland plant so it should be given ample moisture in full sun and will do best in a acidic soil. The growth habit is upright due to its stiff stems and will work great in the garden when used as a perennial. Indian Pink bloom in early summer for about 5 to 6 weeks, just keep removing spent blooms to prolong this bloom time even further. The flowers are bright red with a yellow throat, these are trumpet shaped and are borne in clusters for a spectacular show. At the mouth of each flower the petals come together to form a 5-pointed star, these flowers do a great job of attracting hummingbirds into the garden. Spigelia marilandica has dark green foliage which will start dying back in August then the plant will go dormant in the fall and stay so throughout the winter. Indian Pink can reach 1-2 feet tall with a 1 foot spread at maturity.
