Fire pink, Scarlet catchfly

Last week at Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park, I came across a Fire pink, Scarlet catchfly (Silene virginica) These short-lived perennials are a beautiful contrast to the deep green of the woods!

Silene virginica is listed as Endangered or Threatened in Florida, Michigan, and Wisconsin, but not Ohio.
