While plant hunting in Turner County, Georgia, (USDA Zone 8a) with Woodlanders' Bob McCartney in June 1997, we spotted a small population of phlox in flower along a dirt road near Interstate 75. The foliage was very narrow and glossy green, more reminiscent of an amsonia. The 18" tall x 18" wide clumps of narrow foliage are topped with massive, see-through violet flower heads (RHS 80B) from May through August and show no sign of mildew. Reports from friends in the upper Midwest indicates this is reliable as far as cold Zone 5...maybe further. We hope you enjoy another of our little-known southeastern natives!
