Phlox subulata 'Nettleton's Variatioun' is an English discovery of our North American (Maine to Wisconsin, and south to Louisiana) native, discovered in the late 1980's by UK nurseryman Robert Potterton as a sport on Phlox subulata 'Alexander's Surprise'. The white-edged needle-like foliage is flushed pink during the colder months. In early spring, the foliage is topped with clusters of large salmon pink flowers... perfect for the rock garden.
