Garden Phlox

Yes... it has been quite awhile since our last post.  It has been a busy early summer.

John Fanick Perennial.. or... Garden Phlox

Phlox paniculata "John Fanick" is a Texas Superstar.  

It is named after an outstanding San Antonio nurseryman and true gentleman. It is a hardy perennial with showy clusters of light pink blossoms with darker pink throats. Growth habit is compact, on a stiff 3 foot stem with dark green foliage.  It tolerates heat, drought and powdery mildew.  

The Phlox pictured here have been in bloom for well over a month in our yard. It is fragrant and a great plant for butterflies.
