||Phlox nivalis is another low growing species which is more similar to species subulata in the sense of its speed in spreading. Thanks to Dr.Don Jacobs for rescuing this selection from development, he collected it from Rockdale county, Ga. before development destroyed the colony. Now a sub division replaces the varied colony that offered up several nice color forms for cultivating. Phlox nivalis is a robust species and Don's selection Eco 'Brilliant' which has brilliant fuschia flowers. As always with this species, quantities are limited.
