Phloxes-Colours Unimited

This year around, I seem to have got a wonderful collection and varieties of some beautiful winter plants that I had always wanted in my garden, which, otherwise has always predominantly been composed of the perennials, primarily being the different varieties and colours of roses, the jasmines, the Arabian jasmines and the Juhi, and then the other regulars like the lilies (Amaryllis and the rain lily, the other lilies I've got seem to be taking a lot of time to give me blooms), and the different colours of the moss roses, he single and the double blooming varieties, two more colours (white and mixed pink-white) of which I added last year, while the single ones germinating themselves in some of the pots, from the seeds from the last year, which in turn germinated from the previous year when I had brought the single petalled varieties of the moss roses.
But the reason I am here this time is to share with you all, the numerous blooms my garden has had in the dozens of phloxes, I re-introduced this year again, after a gap of a year. While I get the plants sometimes in bunches of seedlings, and sometimes as separate seedling in trays, most of the times the plants in the seedling trays turn out to be of the same colours, and the same is the case with bunches where a lot of plants turn out to be that of the same colour, just like the petunias I've got this year around. While I was expecting some varieties in case of patterns and colours, I got none, as the blooms in all the petunia plants turned out to be violet and white. Anyways, the phloxes didn't disappoint me, and here I am, with lots of different colours, which I can't recall seeing yet.

Do I still need to say anything? I don't feel the need to. The bright colours, and the colour combinations these small flowers that bloom in bunches, make them really eye catching additions that winter gardens must have. What is good about these beautiful plants is that I have been seeing some seed pods, which I think I can harvest and save for the next year, just like I did for the marguerite daisies and the nasturtiums, and the marigolds and cosmos.
Here, next time, it will be the pansies, yellow-violet, maroon-yellow and the maroon one that is blooming, and I guess that these are yet to come down here. Hopefully, next week, we will meet again and together will see the pansies blooming. So, let's get back here the next week. Till then HAPPY GARDENING!
