A late summer and autumn bloomer
Phlox have always been country garden favourites for their delicious scent and attraction to butterflies and bees. This variety bears large trusses of flowers from July to October on tall stems with narrow, toothed, mid-green leaves. This long-flowering, vigorous perennial will tolerate full sun or partial shade, but like all phlox, does not like soil that dries out in summer. Try it in the middle of a border as part of a deep blues and purple colour scheme. The stems need supporting in spring before the flowers appear.
