In Celebration Of Phlox

Reposting from a few years ago.

I love Phlox. It has been a part of my landscape ever since I moved to Paris Landing. It's just starting to bloom around the neighborhood but here are some of my favorite photos from the past.

It's wonderful in those hard to mow areas.

Up close in a back door garden.  Sure to bring a smile to visitors.

Or, go big! This is the front yard of my first home at Paris Landing.  I know my neighbors thought I was crazy when I spent months and months out there with a shovel rearranging rocks and planting things.  But it was all worth it.  The first Spring when all the Phlox, Ajuga, Daffodils and Azalea bloomed - well, it was breath taking.  It was a perfect fix for a hill that was impossible to mow.
