This is a dwarf phlox, nice and bushy with large flower heads. I love the color - a blend of salmon coral red (sorry, it's hard to really describe the color) with a hint of purple at the eye. This is the second summer I have had these, and they seem to rebloom for me. I have not always had success with phlox, but these do well and generally avoid mildew issues.
