I had the same feedback as the previous reviewer- I ordered two of these phlox in white and mistakenly received a white and a pink one instead. Surprisingly, the pink one is doing much better than the white one.

I just received my plant, and it’s not as much a problem with the plant. The plant is blooming early as promised. It is late May and I already see flowers. The problem is that when I ordered 5 of these plants I received 4 plus one that was the wrong plant. I submitted a form to proven winners and I hope this issue is amended, but until then I asked for a white plant not a pink one.Alex Geoffroy, New Jersey, United States, 1 year ago
