Showy, native, long-lived perennial
Botanical Name: Spigelia marilandica 'Little Redhead'
Hardiness Zone: 5-9
A showy, native, long-lived perennial that is somewhat adaptable but prefers the bright shade and moist acidic soils of a woodland garden. Spigelia 'Little Redhead' is an absolute butterfly favorite with scarlet tubular flowers from which lemon yellow centers seem to explode out of the top.
