Indian Pink (Spigelia marilandica) has become one of my favorite  native Kentucky wildflowers. I added it to my shade garden last summer. The bright red, yellow-tipped blooms in late May and early June are quite dramatic.

And the attractive, dark green foliage will add texture to the shade garden throughout the summer.

Indian Pink is a beautiful plant that does well in dry shade, is about 18″ tall, and is not invasive. It definitely meets my criteria for a favorite native wildflower.
