Clump-forming perennial with trumpet-shaped flowers - red outside, yellow inside. I bought ours as a fair-sized plant in mid-May of 2007, so when in spring of 2008 I still did not see any return at all in early May, I thought for sure it had perished. By the middle of the month, when the smallest bit of green pushed through the soil, I regained some hope - and by late June, I saw its flowers once again. I guess the plant had woken up in a warmer zone that first year...

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Pam||May 14, 2009||I planted some Spigelia marilandica last year, and I haven't seen any signs of life yet (today is May 14). I live in Chalfont, which is a bit south of you. I was wondering whether yours have emerged yet. Thanks|
Mine returned in the first week of May this year (see photo above). If yours is in a shaded location, it may be a bit later to return, but I'd expect growth to resume very soon.
|Patt||Feb 05, 2013||Planted one of the Spigelia marilandica last year just to try it out and I love how it looks, mine seems to have golden leaves which makes the blooms just pop in color. Can't wait to see if it comes back this spring!! If so I will be buying more!|
