The 2002 Perennial Plant of the Year is Phlox, "David".

I have a perfect spot for this and am seriously thinking of putting some in.

Does anyone else have it? Are you happy with it? Is it as fragrant as they say?

No I have not seen this but I looked at a Plhox today called Carolina... It to was a tall phlox like this as well... No flower yet so I could not smell it...

I'm a phlox fan, so if I do invest, I'll be sure to look for this one!

I have it along with a lot of other varieties. When they bloom a whole big bed of it blooms and the neighbors across the street and 300 feet away say they can smell it. I love phlox. It does have a tendency to get mildew but that is wiped out pretty readily with application of a fungicide. There is a home remedy for mildew, but I can never remember what it is and I guess I am too lazy. Get some David and some red ones (Starfire) and some pink and some varigated ones and some blue ones. You will love it.
