As I have been thinking of the possibilities of what might be on the 2012 - 2013 Seed List, I decided to check out some of my "in the wild" photos of some alpine and "desert" alpine gems. Here's one of my favorites: Phlox muscoides OR P. bryoides or, or, or... there are several hybrids in the area where I collected the seed. All of them are sublime specimens of tight, caespitose buns. Grown from seed, 2nd year and flowering. This little beauty loves it moist in the Autumn, Winter and Spring but let it have an 8 week dry season in the Summer. Surprisingly, it doesn't mind several hours of shade during the day.
