Summer Phlox is very popular for its late summer display in the sunny border. Plants have an upright habit, producing large and fragrant clusters of blooms from midsummer to fall.

Good mildew resistance although all Summer Phlox benefit from a location that provides good air circulation and consistent moisture. Remove faded flower heads to encourage more buds to form.
