In 2003, we found a streaky sport on a seedling of the native Phlox divaricata (aka Wild Phlox) and after several years, we finally have it stabilized...or as stable as a variegated phlox can be. Each small green leaf adorning the slowly creeping stems is highlighted by a central band of gold, giving the plant an extra feature when it's not in flower. In April, the 3" tall clumps of evergreen foliage are topped with 8" tall spikes of fragrant light blue flowers that completely obscure the foliage...a great new twist on a superb woodland plant.
