Chockfull of oomph and charisma wherever they reside, even in a bouquet, these floriferous Phlox are enduring warm weather beacons, appreciating moist but well drained soil, deadheading, deep basal waterings and thinning to just four or six stalks.
Our offerings are renowned not only for their lavish floral pageantry, but their unwavering mildew resistance as well.
Consistently receiving the highest ratings in the Chicago Botanical Garden’s Phlox trials and on many a top-10 perennial list, this cherished early-blooming perennial hails from the Chattahoochee River Valley. A probable hybrid between P. divaricata var. laphamii and P. pilosa, the low growing colonizing habit yields glossy lance-shaped foliage topped by airy slightly fragrant clusters of tubular pastel lavender-blue flowers with maroon throats. Its dainty floriferous charm belies an all-around plucky mettle that tackles deer, drought, clay soil and deep shade, while entertaining butterflies, hummingbirds and all who usher it into their gardens.
