Indian Pink Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best in an average to moist soil, in full shade or partially dappled sun. Soils should be rich in organic materials. For best results, spigelia should be well established going into the winter (plant before mid-July) and may need some protection for the first year. Once established it should not be disturbed or transplanted.
