Phlox ‘Fashionably Early Crystal’

Hybrid Phlox

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.417.157

This new Hybrid Phlox blooms 2 to 3 weeks earlier than the average Tall Garden Phlox (Phlox paniculata) and is taller so would work best in the middle to back of the border. Pure white flowers with a light purple eye appear from early summer well into midsummer with some rebloom in fall thereby providing a long season of colour. The broad, dark green, thick foliage stays beautiful all season. Part of the Fashionably Early series which offer exceptional mildew resistance, thick leathery leaves, and a stoloniferous habit (as opposed to the tightly clumping P. paniculata types). USPP#28679: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
