Sabatia angularis, or Rose Pink, is native to the southeastern half of the United States. It is an annual that grows in moist fields, roadsides, forest openings, streambanks, prairies and other such areas. It blooms from mid summer into fall, with medium-sized pink flowers with a yellow center that looks like a star.

This plant looks similar to some other members of the Sabatia genus. It can be distinguished by its opposite leaves which clasp the stem. More information on other species will be posted later.
