A Late Bloomer

   Indian Pink (Spigelia marilandica) usually blooms in May through early June.

The plants grow from 12 – 18 inches tall and usually bloom May through early June.

Their range includes Illinois, down through Texas and over to Virginia.

Then I found this one blooming on July 13th. This should be the last of them since there’s no more buds.

.Maybe they bloomed later to get more attention.

  1. That’s a beauty! I’ve never seen it.
    It’s funny how some flowers will bloom at different times. There are many that should be blossoming here that I haven’t seen yet.
