Common Name Wild Pink Variety  
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Silene Caroliniana
Description Wild Pink, being a short lived perennial, is one of my very favorite native eastern wild flowers with soft pink Phlox like flowers. Mature plant size is 8"High x 10"Wide with flowers measuring 1" across. Great for rock gardens, dry landscapes, hardwood hill sides, or that special place for one small drought tolerant perennial. Re-seeds slowly in favorable conditions and must be divided in the fall every 2-3 years.
Notes
As always with this species, quantities are limited. Dividing plants crowns in winter approximately every 2-3 years will keep the plants vigorous in your garden for they mature off and die 3-5 years.
