Phlox paniculata 'John Fanick' (Polemoniaceae)
An outstandingly tough Phlox found by Greg Grant in a TX garden and added to the Texas A&M "Superstar" line-up. Even through the beastliest of summers 'John Fanick' does not falter — producing clouds of pale-lavender flowers with pink centers, and foliage that remains mildew-free. This customer favorite is a must-have for southern butterfly gardens.
