|This Month's Featured Plant|
In late spring and early summer, the brilliant red-orange flowers of Fire Pink are eye-catching on dry, partly sunny road banks. In the wild, the plants rarely are full or many-flowered. However, when happy in cultivation, this short-lived perennial forms full 1- to 2-foot clumps with dozens of 1-inch flowers. Give it light shade, and average well-drained soil in a perennial garden, rock garden, or natural setting. Good companions are Green-and-Gold, Eared Coreopsis, Dwarf Crested Iris, Sundrops, Beard-tongue, Lyre-leaved Sage, Alumroot, and Cumberland Rosemary. click here
