Laura is a great phlox.

It’s been a tough summer but “Laura” is still holding her own.  If you can ignore the  photo quality long enough, I hope you’ll see her still blooming away into September while ‘barsixty’ (coral flame) towards the front is just a shriveled brown mess.  The freshness might not be with “Laura” any more but at least she’s doing her part to keep the color going  Two months and counting is a good job considering I’ve done nothing other than water enough to keep the poor thing from wilting too badly.  I’m officially going to name Laura my best phlox paniculata 🙂phlox Laura

  1. It is a nice Pholx. It is good to have those late bloomers too.

    It’s amazing how well it thrives in spite of the drought – do you water it a lot? In my last garden Phlox was always a sad sight because of the dry summers.

  3. Nice! Looks fairly compact, too.

  4. Beautiful! I dream of one day having a flower garden filled only with plants that share my name. LOL This “Laura” would definitely be on the list.

      Ha! I didn’t even think of that!
      You have me thinking now….. I can’t think of any plants to fill up a “Frank” garden, i guess no one looks at a flower and thinks ‘let’s name it Frank!’
