|Rose Gentian, Sabatia angularis is another full sun choice that seems quite drought tolerant. The flowers are a striking vivid pink with cute curly center. I'm not sure this picture shows the truly deep pink colour!
Being a wildflower, it shows up where it wishes!! Rose Gentian starts blooming around the first part of June when the weather warms up. I tried transplanting some last year but it didn't come back where I had placed it, & showed up in another part of the garden. So it may be worth a try to start from seed directly where you want it to grow, unless you're like me, a hap-hazard gardener!! My garden never stays the same!!
