This variety of Indian Pink blooms in late spring to early summer—which is later than most wildflowers. That's why we're loving it sprinkled throughout a wildflower garden, it'll keep the garden going until your summer blooms can take over. The bright signal color of the blooms is fantastic for drawing attention—both from people and from hummingbirds. Plant it closer up and let your pale tones fade into the background to make your garden feel bigger.
