Silene rotundifolia /Pink Family
This catchfly is one of the other bright red, summer-blooming woodland wildflowers. It looks similiar to its close relative, the Fire Pink. The leaves are round and the flowers are more star-shaped. Both flowers grow on cliffsides. This picture was taken on the Twin Arches Trail at Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area.
