We've grown quite a few selections of our native Phlox stolonifera, but none can compare with the vigor and foliage density of this selection we named Phlox 'Weesie Smith'. Our 3-year-old clump has spread to 8', forming a ground-hugging mat of thin, surface-lying stems clothed in small, coke spoon-like leaves. The mats are topped, starting in early April, with 10" spikes of hummingbird-friendly lavender-pink flowers...absolutely superb. This phlox comes from the garden of Alabama's first lady of wildflowers...Weesie Smith, thanks to her friend and wildflower compatriot, Jan Midgley.
