This stunning native phlox was found by Mississippi plantswoman Karen Partlow along the road in Kemper, Mississippi. She shared it with customer MK Ramm, who shared it with us. We subsequently named and commercially introduced it in 2003. Recent DNA tests revealed that Phlox 'Minnie Pearl' is actually a selection of Phlox carolina. For us, the mildew-resistant Phlox 'Minnie Pearl' begins flowering in mid-to-late April on 1' tall spikes. The stalks are laden with glossy-green foliage and topped with large, pure white flowers...a hummingbird treat. Phlox 'Minnie Pearl' makes a 2' wide patch in 3 years.
