So we have some of that up here in no-man's land! Great! Thank you for identifying it, chickie and joe! Interesting to know that they bloom every other year.

Thank you for the compliment, roseheather! Glad you liked it.

Thank you for the link, morris. Very helpful!

Just looked up sweet rocket, seems to be the same thing as dames rocket. I did not know that before.

They sort of look like Dame's Rocket, but not sure.

Beautiful color, with the purple, soft browns, greens, greys and yellow and a touch of red. WOW.

Could the flowers be a wild type of phlox? The individual blooms look a bit like phlox.
