Last fall, Michaele sent us some photos of her clouds of pink muhly grass (Muhlenbergia capillaris, USDA Hardiness Zones 7-10), and I don’t know about you, but I fell in love with that plant (refresh your memory here). Today she’s sharing some photos of another of her favorite plants in her Friendsville, Tennessee, garden.
She says, “If I had to come up with a title for this batch of pictures, it would be “Confessions of a Creeping Phloxaholic.” What can I say…I do love this common and humble groundcover. There is something so celebratory of spring about it and it confirms to me that the season has really arrived. It always puts a smile on my face when the blankets of phlox and candytuft light up my pathways and drape over the rock walls. The colors bring out the little kid in me who loved the pastels of Easter eggs and marshmallow chicks.”
Creeping phlox was a common and welcome sight where I grew up, so this brought back good memories, Michaele–thanks! Your stone walls are amazing, and I think we need to see more of your garden throughout the season…hint, hint!
