Native to North America, Spigelia marilandica is a small shrub that typically reaches a height of 2-5 feet, although the plant can reach heights of up to 8 feet in the wild. It is known for its red and crimson vinous flowers. The flowers fade to a yellow-orange color in the fall. This small shrub is a great addition to any garden and is also a great ethnomedical plant, as it is known to have various medicinal properties.

This plant loves full sun, but will also do well in semi-shade. It needs a regular amount of water and is hardy in USDA zones 9-11. When growing in a pot in cold regions, the soil should be kept evenly moist and the temperature should never drop below 55°F.

Spigelia marilandica is a great plant to have in the garden, as it is known to attract butterflies and hummingbirds. It can be grown from seed and will require minimal maintenance over the years. However, due to the presence of alkaloids and calcium oxalate crystals, the plant can be irritating when ingested and should be kept away from animals and children.
