Beth, those are pretty. I have never seen them over here. Andrea


Very you know the botanical name?


Hi Linda, Andrea and Connie! The mountain pinks are a type of phlox, and that's about as technical as I can get! They were given to me as a gift by my sister and her family a number of years ago, along with the forget-me-nots that are in both front borders, and I absolutely love them. I expanded them in the left front border from one patch to two; now I want to move some into the right front border as well -- for symmetry and connection between the borders and because I just love the way they look.
