I had the opportunity to see some cool new plants on my recent trip to Costa Farms — as well as some favorites, such as this delightful annual phlox. This variety is ‘Phloxy Lady Pink’, and there’s a lot to be said for it: A nice, compact habit, loads of blooms, and great heat/drought tolerance (this species is native to Texas, so hot and dry isn’t a problem!).
Grow ‘Phloxy Lady’ and other varieties in full sun in well-drained soil. Don’t let them stay wet too long — that’s a surefire way to make these gorgeous plants sulk. Its compact habit makes this particular variety especially good in containers, too!
