We have long treasured this threatened species of swamp pink gentian in our garden. Although Sabatia dodecandra naturally resides primarily in coastal savannahs, it has made itself quite at home in our garden. The small basal rosette of light green leaves grows insignificantly to 2" tall x 6" wide. From mid-June through July (NC), the fun begins as the flowering stalk expands upward to 2' tall, branching along the way. In late spring and early summer, the clumps are topped with awesome 2" pink daisies. Sabatia dodecandra grows best in a seasonally moist bog or a rather damp spot in the garden...you'll fall in love all over again!
