My Phlox have finally began to bloom 🙂 They have been in the making for nearly 7 yrs. An elderly client gave me a small piece of this plant approximately 7yrs ago and I had no clue what it was going to look like. First, I planted it near the garage. A couple years later I moved it who knows where and it took at least 4 years before it began to fill out.
When it did finally bloom I was so happy that I treated it with some sort of love because honestly, when I planted it by the garage I forgot about it and couldn’t remember where it came from.
As of today, after dividing them a few times, we have 3 large, 2 small and my grandmother has one from a piece I gave her a couple years ago.
Here’s the kicker and I’m assuming this may possibly have to do with Sun light.
(Above)Here’s 1 of 2 near the front of the yard. You see the vibrant color?
(Above)Now, here’s 1 of 2 that I divided from the vibrant one at the top, you see its color? More of a pastel… I noticed it this morning and was shocked because they all come from the same piece. So, what do you think happened? Any expert gardeners out there?
