Spigelia marilandica 'Little Redhead'
Little Redhead Indian Pink
Item #: 6866
Zones: 5b to 9b
Height: 21" tall
Origin: United States
We received this compact form of the wonderful North American native Indian pink from plantsman and garden writer Pam Harper, who extolled its virtues after many years in her garden. Pam originally got the plant years earlier from Bob McCartney of Woodlanders Nursery. While all Spigelia marilandica are great plants, Spigelia 'Little Redhead' is more compact, topping out at 21" tall. The stalks are topped from mid-May until mid-July (NC) with stunning, dark blood-red, tubular flowers highlighted with yellow inside...a hummingbird delight.
