Sunbright




Sunbright (Phemeranthus parviflorus)

       A native plant and found in the central United States from Texas to North Dakota the Sunbright or Prairer flameflower, reaching a height of 8 inches, produces delicate, beautiful 1/2 inch and smaller pink flowers atop a spindly stem in the late spring through the summer.
       The leaves of the Sunbright, located at the base of the plant, up to 2 inches long are thin and cylindrical.
       The Sunbright, a member of the Purslane (Portulacaceae) family, thrives and grows in seemingly barren, dry sandy soils in open or semi-shaded areas and opens in late afternoon or on cloudy days.
       The flowers of this plant look very similar to those in the Pink or Carnation (Caryophyllaceae) family but are disinguished from them by the calyx which has only two sepals.
