Rhexia (Deer Grass, Meadow Beauty, Handsome Harry, Meadow Pitcher)
The genus Rhexia is fairly small, containing just 14 species that are primarily located in the Southeast US (including North Carolina). Rhexia is the black sheep of the Melastomaceae family as it is the only genus in the family that is not tropical. In fact the only cousin of Rhexia that can be grown here in the South is the tropical genus Tibouchina, which is just barely cold hardy.
