We are big fans of this underutilized little native for its versatility and beauty. It can be grown from full sun to part shade and still produces gorgeous foliage and flowers, so 4+ of sunlight is plenty of light. We selected ‘Little Redhead’ because it has quickly become a go to spigelia due to its uniformity and very attractive flowers. Nicely uniform clumps of green foliage yield clusters of tubular fire engine red flowers with visible yellow centers through the entire spring and summer growing period. If you are looking for a native that can be planted in a wide-range of locations and performs like most cultivated garden varieties this is an excellent choice.

Spigelia marilandica

I’ve always wanted to try this plant because it’s native, good for pollinators and I’ve heard it does well in shade or sun. I have two matching planters but one is in more sun than the other so I’ll probably end up planting Spigelia in those so the planters will match. Right now I have the one New Blooms sent in my pollinator garden and the young plant is already starting to bloom. Looks like it will be a strong easy plant to garden with.
