Garden Phlox (Phlox paniculata 'Franz Schubert')
Phlox paniculata 'Franz Schubert'
I don’t feel like I have much to say today other than what a week it was. I am glad it is over in so many ways. Yesterday I was tending to the big rose garden and it was really cold. Not mention all the thorns I stuck by, including a deep one right in the knuckle. Just marvelous. I only got about 2/3’s of the roses done and am going back tomorrow for some more punishment.
This Phlox is a beauty. What can you say about such a classic flower as Garden Phlox? There have been several posts of P. paniculata on this site so use the search or click the label if you want to find out a little more about the flowers.
I saw this striped rose in Ireland and it was very interesting. I used to not be crazy about striped roses but I have been liking them more lately, maybe it is an acquired taste.
