Bohemia Ecological Preserve

Indian Pink is bright red (not pink) - but it is in the Pink (Caryophyllaceae) Family. Its petals appear to have been trimmed with pair of pinking shears. (Although Wikipedia asserts that pinking shears were named after the flower.) It has recently gotten a new middle name: Silene laciniata ssp. californica. The common name Indian Pink is used for several other, very different-looking flowers outside of California.
