I was pretty excited to find this little bag of 3 roots of orange perfection phlox at my local Wal*mart.
I've ordered it twice during the past twenty years, but it has never bloomed for me. I am thinking of planting these roots in the half whiskey barrels on the deck so I can make sure they get extra attention.
I understand the blooms on this are sometimes more pink than orange. I hope mine turns out to be orange. I've got enough pink phlox.
Does anybody grow this? What color are your blooms?
Here's my latest snack craze: Sliced bananas, honey and sunflower seeds. YUM!
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
