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 produces deep purple-red, non-fading, fragrant flower heads over a compact clump of dark green foliage. Happiest in a sunny location. Good mildew resistance although all Summer Phlox benefit from a location that provides good air circulation and consistent moisture. Summer Phlox are superb for cutting, and may even attract passing butterflies. Remove faded flowers to encourage a second bloom. Clumps are easily divided in early spring, if desired.
