Phlox carolina ssp. carolina 'Kim' is a cultivar of Carolina phlox, a short but sturdy upright species of phlox native to the southeast that blooms from late May to early June. Although shorter than some phlox species, the 'Kim' cultivar has a vigorous habit that keeps it upright all throughout the growing season, light green foliage which distinguishes it from other phlox, dense clusters of eye-catching light pink flowers, and to top it all off, has the added benefit of resistance to powdery mildew. Lower growing than other upright phlox species,  'Kim' is naturally mat-forming, which makes it a great addition to border plantings or edgings, where its striking, profuse pink flowers and spicy fragrant perfume attract pollinators, butterflies, hummingbirds, and gardeners alike.
