Re: Phlox

WG supplies a lot around here too and I know they are one of the suppliers
used by the nursery where I got my 'OP'.  I've purchased from WG for the
last few years and have always gotten good stock, true to name.  However,
all their tall Phlox are root cuttings listed as No 1 Grade or No 1
Transplant and are shipped in bags of 25 and the buyer pots them up when
they arrive.  It's possible that a worker just put the wrong tag on the pot.

I agree that when you're doing a public garden, your plants MUST be
correctly identified because the color is so very important.  However, to
play it safe, I'd probably use plants I'd seen before - especially when it
comes to an "orange" phlox.  Orange is soooooooo debateable, especially on a
plant that just normally doesn't come in that color.
