I'm ready to proclaim this as the most butt-ugly phlox that has ever been sold. Holland's Jan Verschoor must have been tormented by phlox when he was a child to be driven to introduce a plant this ugly. The 28" stalks of this P. paniculata hybrid are topped in mid summer with heads of lavender flowers, each bordered with a wide tan edge. Does that sound attractive to anyone? Unique, yes. Unusual, yes, but you'd need to be high on crystal meth to find this attractive, and damn near comatose to find it worthy of a patent. Limited quantities...guess why!
