Silene virginica L.
Fire pink, Scarlet catchfly
Caryophyllaceae (Pink Family)
USDA Symbol: SIVI4
USDA Native Status: Native to U.S.
Fire-pink is a weak-stemmed, 1-2 ft., short-lived perennial with long, narrow, opposite leaves and bright-red, tubular flowers. Five petals flare out from the flowers’ tubular bases, and each petal is notched into two, sharp-pointed lobes. Bright red, long-stalked flowers bloom in loose clusters at tops of slender, weak, or reclining stems.

A common name for members of this genus is Catchfly, which refers to the sticky hairs or exudates which trap insects.
