Is there anything that smells as sweet and gives
you days of beautiful blooms as phlox does.
I love the tall 'Adonis Pink' that has been in my
garden for years. It doesn't mind the clay soil
and it keeps getting better every year.
When I step out the back door the fragrance from
it fills the breeze.
To add to this summers weird plant habits around
my gardened it does appear that the pink of the blooms
is much deeper.
This little gem is suppose to be a tall 'Polka Dot'
phlox, but looks nothing like the picture of it.
In the picture the petal edges were not jagged.
It is new this summer to the garden but I am
not sure I am going to like it, but maybe it will grow
on me as it matures. It blooms earlier
than the others that I have.
Also new to the garden this summer is "Nora
Leigh' . She will be beautiful in a few years..
I wanted a variegated leafed Phlox to add to
the edges of the flower bed which gradually
goes into the shade to add some light at night
I am really going to like this one and will be
looking for some more different variegated
varieties. Do any of you know some others
that might be nice to add to the beds?
The "David White' phlox is slower this year
and is just now setting on some buds so it
will be a few days before it is in full bloom.
I have also added a "Starfire Red' and
a purple one new to the garden that will
probably be next year before they bloom,
but I can always hope for at least one bloom.
Happy Gardening Everyone!
