Very Beautiful new Phlox variety available at my local Lowe's this year. Up close it is a pale pink but from further back it glows a hauntingly beautiful pale lavender. Almost identical in color to the garden phlox variety David's Lavender, but is only about half as tall in height at about 18-24 inches tall.
