Maiden Pink is a brilliant pink flower with five petals. Each petal has darker pink stripes going across their width near the center of the flower. Flowers appear one per stem, but sometimes you can find many Maiden Pinks all growing together. They are such beautiful flowers that they are planted by highway departments along roads and sidewalks.
The stems grow up to 18 inches tall, and the leaves are very narrow.
