annual phlox, Phlox drummondii

For some reason this image appealed to me today more than a closer shot. Tired of close ups? Actually, annual or Drummond's phlox is a little different than most of its relatives anyway. It's an annual that comes in brighter colors than other more pastel phlox. Its attractive and easy in gardens. Originally from Texas, it has now been recorded from at least AL, AR, CT, FL, GA, LA, MD, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, OK, SC, TN, TX, VA, VT, NB, and ON, most commonly on roadsides. Alachua Co FL, 1/28/13.
