Notes:

Found this in border planting on the east side of a property that I was visiting. I would love to find out what this is plant some in my yard.

    Don’t eat it. It contains strychnine.

    We also call this fire pink. It is a native woodlant plant here in Northwest Alabama, growing just as it is pictured, along the edges of forests and ditches. My husband showed me one on our first date. We went back the next year and moved a small one to our yard. 14 years later the cluster is about 18 inches in diameter with multiple bloomheads that delight us year after year. Great plant. Enjoy!

    I believe the common name for this is Indian pink. (Not that it’s pink – just in the ‘pink’ family.)
