Fire Pink, Silene virginica , sometimes called Catch Fly and the name Catch Fly refers to the fact that insects often stick to the foliage. This may prevent undesirable insects from interfering with pollination by more suitable insects. There is some evidence that American Indians used roots of Fire Pink to get rid of intestinal worms.
