|Very pretty. I'm not one for pale pink, but I like the bright pinks. For some reason, creeping phlox is a challenge for me, not sure what the problem is. It grows well for a year or two, then just peters out. My tall phlox does just fine. |
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

|Deb, the one that is in the picture was at least 5 years old when I took that picture, so I've had very good luck with it. This was in my Utah garden though, which is zone 5a, so maybe that makes a difference? It did almost too well there, but boy, what a show every Spring!|
Tara, you should give it a try! The nice thing is that it can be cut way back after blooming. This one covered many plants around it that would start growing about the same time that this one was done blooming. So, I'd cut it way back. It would often get a few more blooms on it, but didn't spread like it did when it first started growing. I miss that plant and need to get some for here!

| I love phlox!|
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

|My very favorite flower. My grandmother grew them all over the bank to the upper vegetable garden. I always have them in my gardens. Such lovely memories. Beautiful banner, Natalie. |

|Lovely banner, Natalie. I love the creeping phlox although I haven't had too much luck with them in my AR garden, however, your banner makes me want to try again!|
