What Houzz contributors are saying:

Curtis Adams added this to Great Design Plant: Spigelia Marilandica
When I first saw this plant in bloom in 2008, I said, “Hot dog!” Not only was I fascinated by its striking appearance, but I thought it looked kind of like a hot dog with ketchup and mustard. Since that time, I have been working this plant into designs where I need a late spring bloomer in open shade. The plant continues to look good after blooming, with its glossy leaves forming an attractive ground cover in a woodland or other partly shady site. In 2008 it was uncommon in nurseries, but supplies seem to be increasing, and it is starting to show up in retail nurseries, as well as online and by mail order. Winter is a great time to think about next year’s garden. If you’re planning a hummingbird garden, Indian pink needs to be on the planting list. Botanical name: Spigelia marilandicaCommon names: Indian pink, woodland pinkroot, wormgrassOrigin: Native to woodland edges and shaded woods of the southeastern U.S., from Maryland south to Florida and west to TexasWhere it will grow: Hardy to -30 degrees Fahrenheit (USDA zones 4 to 9; find your zone)Water requirement: Prefers moist soils and does not tolerate droughty conditionsLight requirement: Grows best in dappled shade but will grow in full shade as well; can be grown in full sun if supplied with adequate moisture (too much sun can bleach the edges of the leaves)Mature size: Grows in upright clumps, 1 foot to 2 feet tall and about 1 foot wideCaution: All parts of the plant are considered poisonous.

Many hummingbird plants grow best in full sun or partly sunny sites. Some early spring bloomers will grow under trees, but there aren’t many choices for later in the season, after the shade canopy fills out. Indian pink (Spigelia marilandica) is an exception; it prefers growing in dappled shade, producing bright crimson and yellow tubular flowers in mid to late spring.
