Spigelia Little Redhead, Indian Pink

A superior selection of our native Indian Pink, Spigelia, ‘Little Redhead’ puts on a vibrant show of crimson trumpets with brilliant yellow centers. Extremely versatile, ‘Little Redhead’ Indian Pink grows in shade and sun, and even tolerates the toughest conditions of all-dry shade under trees. One of our most popular Missouri native perennials with humans and creatures alike, hummingbirds can’t resist its sweet nectar. Indian Pink’s flowers appear over a long time starting in May with flowering continuing into July. Indian Pink ‘Little Redhead’ matures to a mound of attractive foliage.

Spigelia naturally grows under trees and looks lovely in shady woodland gardens. It’s fantastic in formal beds, cottage gardens, and naturalized. Indian Pink works great for a multitude of other landscape applications as well: sunny or shady perennial borders, as an easy care groundcover under trees, pollinator and native gardens…and the list goes on and on.

An easy to grow native, Spigelia prefers well-drained soil that has been amended with compost or other organic matter, and a spot in full sun to full shade. Good drainage is a must. Although it is tolerant of drought and dry soil, Indian Pink will benefit from good soakings during dry spells, and will bloom best with consistent moisture.
