Chock-full of oomph and charisma, Phlox are enduring warm weather beacons, appreciating moist well-drained soil, frequent deadheading and deep basal waterings, while periodic thinning to just 4 or 6 stalks ensures healthier paniculata cultivars.
A top-performer at Mt. Cuba’s Phlox trials for its sturdy, disease-resistant habit plus redolent flower-power, ‘Forever Pink’ is the brainchild of Dr. Jim Ault, the Chicago Botanical Garden’s talented plant breeder. Fancied by butterflies and hummingbirds, vivacious 1 in. wide, saturated pink blooms are thankfully sterile, unfurling prior to the paniculatas in early summer, then again in autumn. This Phlox glaberrima ssp. triflora and Phlox ‘Bill Baker’ descendant hosts mildew-free light green leaves and strong upright stems, which form a uniform, mostly evergreen, close-knit basal clump.
