Phlox ‘Forever Pink’

Summer Phlox

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.410.930

Vigorous, compact plants with excellent resistance to powdery mildew, which often infects the more common Summer Phlox. This new selection from Chicagoland Grows® features masses of purplish-pink flowers in June, often reblooming in October. Attractive light green foliage. Remains upright all season. Remove faded flowers to encourage repeat blooming. Attracts butterflies. Shear the plants to the basal evergreen foliage either in late autumn or early spring. Drought tolerant once established. Developed by Dr. Jim Ault at the Chicago Botanic Garden from a cross made in 2007 between Phlox glaberrima ssp. triflora and Phlox ‘Bill Baker'. USPP#24918: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
