Allan Armitage's Phlox called 'Wanda' blooms over and over. Do any of you grow this one? I rooted a cutting in some water and it is already blooming. Here are some photos. Sorry for the bad photo of the cutting blooming. This plant is a definite winner. It's one of the best plants I've ever grown.

That's a looker. How did you get the cutting to grow!. I could use some tips to get some of mine going, tried once never got anything. Great that it keeps blooming.

I use small glass bottles with water. I stick them under a light and leave it on all the time. After they get a few roots, I plant in small pots for a few weeks and then plant outside. This one even blooms indoors!

I have some that is blooming outside now! It was down to 28 earlier in the week. I don't know if this is Wanda or not because I bought it in a gallon pot a couple yrs ago without a tag.

Does anyone know of a mail order nursery that carries phlox 'Wanda'? I can't find it at the local nurseries.

I did a short search on Daves Garden Plant Files.
You can use this feature without a membership. First page didnt turn up anything.
My closest phlox would be Nikky.I'm not sure about the constant rebloom as mine were new this year.

It would probably be better to check in the spring. I found one company that has it, maybe they will let you pre-order for spring. Green Grin!

Thanks, ya'll! I've been busy in school. I knew it was going to be difficult going back to school, but I was sick so much. I caught the flu right before Thanksgiving and have been fighting sinus infections and bronchitits ever since. I hope all of you are well and have a great Holiday season. I missed Thanksgiving turkey and the entire family get together but I hope to get to have Christmas with my family. I made a 4.0 in school though of which I am very proud! Hurray!

When I checked out phlox 'Wanda' at Bustini, the website said it was available "in store only" so that does not look to be a possibility anyway. Plant lust is a terrible thing Hilarious!
