Phlox ‘Running with Scissors’


Hybrid Moss Phlox

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.410.850


This hybrid moss phlox is considered supercharged as far as flower power, vigour and durability are concerned. In early to mid spring, masses of large, fragrant, light to medium violet flowers appear with strongly cleft and blunt petals similar to training scissors after which it was named. Flowering lasts up to 6 weeks with a possible rebloom in fall. The dark green foliage is rosemary-like. Vigorous. A mounded grower that continues to spread over time. A light pruning is recommended immediately after flowering is complete. Cross made in 2008 between Phlox 'McDaniel’s Cushion’ and Phlox bifida. Developed by Dr. Jim Ault at the Chicago Botanic Garden for the the Chicagoland Grows® plant introduction program. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
