A Friday Flaunt

Marsh pink hobnobbing with white top pitcher plant.

My tiny bog bowl is blooming again—in spite of being attacked by squirrels and chipmunks more than once. Although there's still a slip of an orchid in there, I haven't seen it bloom yet, so hands down it's marsh pink for Best of the Bog award today!

Marsh pink (Sabatia dodecandra) is such a sweet native flower, and easy to grow as long as you can keep the roots moist. Pollinators love it, it's pretty, and it has a pleasing, light fragrance. Plant Delights sells it, if you decide you would like to try it for yourself.

Happy Friday!
