Phlox “Harpeth River”


This is wild Phlox paniculata growing along the Greenway behind the Ensworth School in Nashville, Tennessee. I call it “Harpeth River ” because I see it everywhere in the bottomlands along the Harpeth and Little Harpeth River. My friend, Mrs George Rosenthal, grows it to great advantage in a damp spot in her woodland garden up on Huntwick Trail.  Unlike cultivated garden phlox it does not mildew and it is long blooming.
