Charles Marshburn: Hypothesis on why phlox is Sweet William
About: - Wildflowers of KY: A Master's Roadside Bouquet, wherein the captioneer refers to what the rest of the world calls "Wild Phlox" as "Sweet William"
Charles Marshburn writes:
"Sweet William" most likely originated in Sulphur Well and Center and spread from those locations to the rest of the planet. "Phlox" is undoubtedly a misnomer derived from the preponderance of errant seed in the wind. - Charles Marshburn>Thanks, Charles Marshburn,. I buy it, totally. In more than one half a century, I had not figured that out. It's pure genius on your part. But there's still a mystery: What is the little ten-petal white flower in the photo? Hope someone can enlighten us half as much on that as you have on the Sweet William/Phlox issue. - EW
