The fragrant, bright, rosy flowers of the Sabbatia glimmer through the thickets and in the meadows where they grow abundantly, during July and August. The rather stout, much-branched stalk is sharply four-sided, and grows two or three feet high. The branches, which bear a single flower, are usually arranged in opposite pairs. The stemless, five-ribbed, pointed-oval leaves are clasping and somewhat heart-shaped at the base, and occur in pairs. The large, slender-stemmed flowers are rose-pink in colour and are marked with a central green star. The wheel-shaped corolla has five rounded, oval segments. The Rose Pink prefers rich soil, and ranges from New York to Florida, and west to Ontario, Michigan, Indian Territory and Louisiana.
