This lovely little Phlox started life in the Alpine Circle. Over the years it came up less and less. Then all of a sudden I discovered that it had travelled across the grass and self-seeded on the mini island in the Greenhouse Pond.

It has come on even better in this area. The Alpine Circle had great drainage and full sun, conditions that they like. But there is actually very little soil on the mini island and I've never seen it looking so good. It looks great with the single Caltha palustris in the pond too.

It must prefer the conditions on the island and a lovely combination with the yellow of the Caltha.

Locvely when plants do that. Alpine phlox ought to do a lot better here than it does!

Amazing how plants decide where they want to be!

Great when a plant can choose its own best spot!
