Phlox paniculata ‘Shortwood’


Summer Phlox

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.415.640


The large, Hydrangea-like flower clusters of Summer Phlox create a spectacular show in the summer border. Sweetly fragrant as well, the flowers waft their scent over quite a distance. This selection has bright pink flowers, with a darker eye. All varieties of Summer Phlox are superb for cutting, and may even attract passing butterflies and hummingbirds. Be on the lookout for powdery mildew, beginning in early summer. Regular deep waterings will do a lot to help prevent this disease problem. From Blooms of Bressingham®. USPP#10379: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
