Phlox paniculata ‘Watermelon Punch’


Summer Phlox

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.415.840


Summer Phlox is very popular for its midsummer display in the border. This compact selection produces large clusters of fragrant flowers with bright, salmon-pink overlapping petals surrounding a tiny white eye. The dwarf habit makes this 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 circulaltion and consistent moisture. Remove faded flowers to encourage more buds to form. Attractive to butterflies. From plant breeder Jan Verschoor of the Netherlands. USPP#19610: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
