Phloxy, Mopsy and Cottontail

With apologies to Beatrix Potter, I present three different tall phlox flowering in my garden.

Phlox paniculata, variety unknown (Phloxy)

Phlox paniculata 'Creme de Menthe', notice the variegated leaves (Mopsy)

Phlox paniculata 'David' (Cottontail)

Currently, I have these three colors of tall phlox in three separate areas of the garden and so they don't really relate to one another. They are all growing well, require no staking, and seem to be surviving in the heat. I have a notion to put them all closer together in the garden for a larger display.

(Oh, and if you like pretty moths, check out My Garden Pictures for a picture of one that I found in my yard yesterday.)


  1. My mother buys phlox at the farmer's markets every year and allows them to dry in vases around her house. I'm amazed how their beauty remains despite their state of being. Yours are beautiful.
