Well-drained soil. Covered with white phlox-like blooms for a long season. Panhandle native. Great plant

Description:

Nice Panhandle native. Long bloom season. Rock garden. Showy when in bloom. Reseeds nicely in gravel. To less extent in flower


Garden Notes: Reseeds nicely in gravel. To less extent in flower beds. The volunteer plants will often be stronger than the plants you buy from me. Look for the narrow leaves in early summer and let them grow. I’ve never had more plants than I wanted.
