Your best Phlox?
Of course such a topic has surely been posted in previous years but for sure not in 2013 ;). It came to mind seeing the recent thread discussing "Blue Paradise" Phlox plus it could be fun for me to read while I wait for the forecasted 6 to 10 inches of snow to come in the next 24 hours!
Try to make reference to such criteria as
- colour and beauty of flower
- health ie mildew
- any unique features
I will start.
I love my Peppermint Twist. It blooms for an incredibly long time...maybe 4 to 5 weeks for that wonderful first bloom and it will re-bloom just fine with a good shear.
In the two very different locations I have this phlox it has performed similarly with little mildew.
One caveat is that both stands had grown far in excess of the advertised height of 18"...mine were over 3 feet. This year I plan to pinch them back well in advance of blooming to reduce this height as their current placement assumed a much shorter plant.
As well I did experience some reversion/mutation to solid pink/coral...but not much.
