Modest flocks of phlox

I read once, I think, that all cultivated phlox, even that homely old-fashioned tall puce phlox, is derived from Drummond's phlox, so modest and so pretty. Some years we don't see any, but this year we have some, peeking out from beneath other flowers, some amidst the ranunculus and some with the firewheels.
