A review: Shortwood Phlox

This is shortwood phlox that I purchased at a plant sale in the spring. The fragrance of this plant is unbelievable. I never have grown phlox before (Newbie here), do all varieties smell like this, I wonder. If so, I must have more! I really like the huge clumps of flowers and the color. This plant has tickled me pink!

Here is a plant description:
High mildew resistance, upright sturdy stems with bright pink blooms with rose eyes. Very showy throughout the summer. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Great for fragrant cuts, in border or mass plantings.

Full sun.
Ht: 36-40".
Spacing: 2-3'.
Blooms in the summer.
Zones: 4-8
