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 clump has spread to 8' in 3 years, forming a ground-hugging mat of thin, surface-lying stems clothed in small, 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, the late Weesie Smith, thanks to her friend and wildflower compatriot, Jan Midgley.
