(aka: Phlox pilosa A3LA-053) We found this amazing selection of Phlox pilosa growing in a roadside ditch with Claytonia in Marion County, Texas. The very narrow, hairy leaves (2.5" long x 0.125" wide) adorn the 1' tall, hairy stems topped, starting in late April (NC), with hundreds of small, light lavender deliciously fragrant flowers...attractive to hummingbirds. In case you didn't pass Latin, pilosa means "hairy." The foliage alone is enough reason to grow this cool phlox, but it is without question the most floriferous (and hairy) phlox we have ever seen. Phlox 'Slim Jim' spreads like crazy, making a 4' wide dense patch in 2 years, but integrates nicely with neighbors since it goes nearly summer dormant.
