Indian Pink

Clump-forming, low-growing shade-loving perennial with multiple erect stems with opposite lance shaped leaves topped with striking bi-color blooms. The flowers are tubular, about one inch long, bright red on the outside with yellow throats and prominent, elongated yellow stamens protruding from the five tiny petals. Several flowers will bloom in succession from the upper leaf axils of the stem. Flowers are followed by a tubular seed capsule that splits and ejects multiple seeds. Hummingbirds and butterflies are the main pollinators of the flowers. Spreads slowly through rhizomes.
