Re: Phlox

Must by my settings, too. I'd say you have to have an overly active imagination to see that as orange, salmon ["sammon"] or otherwise.

you said your Phlox pan 'Orange Perfection' came out pink. Mine is finally
blooming and it was obviously mislabeled. It is none other than Phlox pan
'Laura'. Oh well, Laura fits my colors better anyway, but it would have
been nice to see 'OP'.

Walters Gardens usually shows reliable photos, so I checked theirs at:
http://www.waltersgardens.com/ index.cfm?fuseaction=plants.plantDetail&plant_id=710

Their description reads "Giant, 5 to 6 inch long panicles of flaming,
salmon-orange flowers sit atop strong stems all Summer long. " The photo,
though makes them look red, but that could be my settings. So I pulled out
their catalog and this is one of the few items for which they did not print
a picture.

So I guess, we still don't know, do we?
