Silene caroliniana

Wild Pink

Silene caroliniana, also known as Wild Pink, is a semi-evergreen groundcover that produces eye-catching clusters of bright pink flowers starting in May and lasting into June. Phlox-like, five-petalled flowers attract bees, butterflies, nocturnal moths, and occasionally hummingbirds. Although this plant likes full morning sun, it prefers partial shade in the afternoon, and can be quite drought and dry soil tolerant. Wild Pink makes a great addition to the rock garden or at the front of cottage or pollinator garden, where it assumes a clumping and lightly mat-forming habit. While Silene caroliniana is native to much of the central and eastern United States, it is considered endangered in Florida.
