Don't wait around all season for your tall garden phlox to come into their own - just add 'Nora Leigh' to your garden! Sure, it blooms in summer with nice pink-white flowers, but before and after that, it gussies up your garden with its neatly variegated foliage. Leaves are mostly creamy white to yellow, each one painted with a fresh green blotch in the center that bleeds into the margin for a truly artistic effect. Coupled with the distinctive bright pink eye in the center of each floret, and the butterflies and pollinators it attracts, this plant is a visual hub of activity that's ideal for pollinator gardens in need of some pizazz.
