Miss Lingard's Fragrant BouquetSaturday, August 03, 2019
|Phlox carolina 'Miss Lingard' buds not yet opened 3 August 2019|
My RAE (Diccionario de la Real Academia) has no entry for phlox. The closest is flof (defined as the noise objects make when they fall) and flux.
Phlox carolina ‘Miss Lingard’ is a fave perennial of my Rosemary. She likes it because it is white, has a lovely scent and it does not develop the rust that other phloxes invariably get.
No matter how much I searched I did not find any Miss Lingard. My guess is that since this particular phlox is sometimes called the Wedding Flox, Miss Lingard can no longer found as she adopter her new husband’s surname.
As perennials go I cannot get excited about phlox. But then no garden is a garden if it is a mono culture of roses or bi-culture of roses and hostas. With the rose season in hiatus until early fall I could not resist cutting the phlox and scanning it.The same goes for my scan of Hosta 'Fragrant Bouquet'.
