NCBG Seeds Fire-pink
Fire pink has showy red flowers that add vibrant color to the garden. This southeastern native perennial has low-growing rosettes of narrow, lance-shaped leaves. Established plants produce slender upright stems, each bearing a number of its starry crimson flowers. In the wild, it is seen on wooded slopes and along roadsides. Fire pink blooms prolifically in the garden when provided with good drainage and at least half a day of sun. It provides vivid accent to a border or it can be decorative in a container on a patio or deck. 2015 N.C. Wildflower of the Year.
