Phlox paniculata ‘Mystique Black’

Summer Phlox

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.415.980

Summer Phlox is very popular for its midsummer display in the border. This midsized selection first produces very showy flower buds of deep purple-black, lasting for weeks. These eventually open into heads of flowers, the lavender-pink petals surrounding a deeper pink eye. The short habit makes this suitable for the border as well as mixed containers. Remove faded flowers to encourage more buds to form. Attractive to butterflies.
