Carolina Pink is a short-lived perennial found in sandy woods, on slopes and on rock outcrops in the Southeast. It forms tidy, neat 6 inch clumps with blue-green narrow, evergreen leaves. Numerous clusters of five-petaled, strong pink (rarely white) flowers appear several inches above the foliage from late spring on into the summer. Carolina Pink is good in a sunny or lightly shaded rock garden where its clear pink flowers would stand out nicely on granite or limy rocks. Good drainage is mandatory. (Sunlight Gardens)
