Phlox paniculata
Commonly known as garden phlox. Ironically it says that it likes loamy or sandy soil on the site I read from BUT it survives very well in clay. My soil is dark blue it is so clayey! Even more interresting news is that after digging up around the house to drain the soil around the phlox roots got thrown under a rhododendron bush and low and behold today I found it had shoots! I am amazed as we had an exceptionally cold winter measuring -27 degrees as our coldest. Well they have now been placed in a flower bed with very nutritious soil so I am wondering if it will like it there, it may be a little dry. This is the colour I seem to remember it as being, if I am wrong it is then bluer. ;)
