(coll # A11NC-070) In spring 2000, I stumbled on this amazing clump of pink-flowered Phlox divaricata near Parksville Beach (1,500' elevation) in Polk Co., TN. Now, you're probably asking how can there be a beach in the mountains of TN? Well, it's sorta' a redneck thing. We brought cuttings home, where they have performed superbly, and now we have enough to share. The easy-to-grow, 2" tall, evergreen mats make a 2' wide patch in 4 years, topped in late April/early May with short spikes of beautiful pink-purple flowers...a hummingbird favorite. This is a dramatic variation from what we typically expect from this wild phlox species.
