If you haven't tried royal catchfly, then you have missed one of the truly great Southeast US natives. Emerging from a basal rosette, the flowering stems shoot to 2-3' tall, clothed to the top with long smooth green leaves. In August, the stalks burst forth with hundreds of exquisite 5-petaled screaming hot orangeish-red flowers. S. regia has high shock value in the perennial border!
