Don't wanna be rich.
Looooove it when you treat him bad.
Fire Pink, Silene virginica. (Map.)
"Pink" refers to the zigzag pattern, as if the petals were cut with pinking shears.
Here it flourishes in the driest, rockiest areas. The previous owner laid down a narrow chert road through the woods. Fire Pink popped up along the edges and multiplies every year, fashioning its own version of a red carpet.
