I was going up the road to rescue some trillium for a friend and came upon these beautiful fire cracker red blossoms among the weeds in the ditch. I dug three small clumps and planted them on my rock garden. I came into the computer station and did some research. They are fairly rare, but some wild flower nurseries sell them. Indian pink is one of the common names.
< p>They propagate by seed and dividing and they are perennial to zone 5 and sometimes to zone 4. I love discovering rare treasures that secretly grow around me here in Kentucky. Enjoy. Your friend, Bill Mitchell
