    ... but when you're backing out of the driveway and out of the car window you see a cloud of pink and then purple, it's hard not to be impressed.

    Now I'm glad I let the asters grow!

    I have a bunch of phlox too... just not along the driveway!

    These are just asters. The pink flew in from the back yard, blown from a plant that I had purchased. The purple is the native wild New England Aster.

    Now the two have hybridized and I have several shades that are in between!

    Phlox are easy to grow and really give a great show of color.

    Yes. And I wish mine didn't get spider mites! Anybody know how to deal with those? I notice that they are also afflicting all the ground ivy in my lawn. Not that I care about the ground ivy, just that if I spray the phlox and don't spray the lawn, the mites will probably just move on into the phlox again. :thumbdown:
