I found seeds of Phlox 'Starry Eyes', but "Twincle Star Mix'
seems more interesting. Where I can buy seeds?

One of the few plants I make sure to sow every year. The array of colors and flower shapes is amazing - it seems that no two are alike. It blooms starting early summer and continues all summer long. It likes full sun, but I have been successful with partial shade. It doesn't like being transplanted much so be careful with the root system.
