The Indian Pink (Spigelia marilandica) flower grows abundantly throughout the southeast United States, across to Texas, or northeast to Pennsylvania or New Jersey. 

The Indian Pink flower grows wild in large clusters and is one of the most beautiful plants anywhere. The Spigelia marilandica is commonly known as Woodland of Maryland Pinkroot and Worm Grass. If you want to attract lots of Hummingbirds, plant the perennial flowering Indian Pink in your garden.

Bees, birds, and butterflies also love the Pink Indian nectar.

Indian Pink keeps its glossy green leaves all season, but its flowers bloom in late spring and throughout the summer. Even though the color pink is in its name, there are no mistaking Indian Pink flowers. The Spigelia marilandica grows to a tall height of 12 to 18 inches. The flowering blooms are gorgeous bright red; it has a flared tubal shaped flower that opens up into a bright five yellow star pattern.This perennial produces its primary display in early summer and flowers sporadically through the remainder of the growing season.

The Spigelia marilandica Indian pink flowers can be grown quickly.

They can also be purchased from nurseries in the native plant or wildflower section. The growing needs for Pink Indian wildflowers require a little shade and a little sunlight. As a woodland wildflower, it needs moist soil and fertilizing. It is a beautiful stalwart plant which should be planted before the beginning of August.

You can also collect the Indian Pink roots after the flowering blooms have disappeared. The domestically grown Indian Pink roots can be harvested in the autumn and then dried. The U.S. Native American Indians used Indian Pink for medicinal purposes and in their spiritual ceremonies to induce visions.

The bright flowers attract hummingbirds and brighten the woodland edge or perennial border. Modern science has developed the Indian Pink plants into drugs to help in treating tapeworms, respiratory issues, HIV treatments, cancer, stammering, severe headaches, heart condition prescriptions, and more.
