Among the nicest phloxes in our garden, this one sports bicolored flowers that are supposed to be fragrant (I admit to not having noticed). It came to us as part of a generous plant-trade-by-mail.

Thin strappy leaves, already brightening up the garden in early April

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
