Phlox paniculata ‘Delilah’


Summer Phlox

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.416.050


Summer Phlox is very popular for its midsummer display in the border. This compact selection produces large clusters of fragrant, unusual deep red-purple flowers over dark green foliage. Doesn't fade like other purple Phlox. Remove faded flowers to encourage more buds to form. Suitable for the border front or in containers. Happiest in a sunny location. Good mildew resistance although all Summer Phlox benefit from a location that provides good air circulation and consistent moisture. Attractive to butterflies. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
