'Pink flame', is one of the hardiest of all phlox I've ever grown. It is even hardier than 'Laura', as laura phlox is not all that it is cracked up to be as it has burnt out twice in my NC garden. Pink flame has outlasted all the other garden phlox this year in my garden as it is late August and it still is just as green as when I planted it.

Just purchased 12 of these at Lowe's. What a pretty little Phlox! You can definitely tell it's smaller so I don't think it will get leggy looking at the end of the season. Beautiful pink color and nice foliage!
