Phlox Pilosa the Practically Perfect Pink Phlox has been in bloom since April 6!
In fact, she blooms her little heart out~~and while she's blooming she perfumes the garden with a sweet phlox scent. Sometimes, when I am weeding I just reach down and cup a flowering stem to get a better sniff.
She's planted in full sun, semi-shade, semi-sun, deep shade and if there is any other aspect I've forgotten...she would bloom there. She's even happy growing in a crack on the steps!
I don't mind that she travels around the garden making friends with all the other blooming plants...I can easily dig her up, wrap her carefully in wet newspaper, then plastic wrap so she can survive the trip, put her in a cardboard box and mail her to you. I love to imagine you weeding your garden, when you catch something sweet on the breeze. You'll wonder, "Could that be Practically Perfect Pink Phlox?" Before you know it, you'll find yourself leaning over to her pretty pink flower face to take a deeper breath! Trust me, you will!
