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
