Phlox '21st Century Blue' reviews
Reviewed 18th July 2016 by Enid Richmond
I planted these with lime green nicotiana in a large urn and they look amazing. It pays to dead head them regularly.
Superb shower of colour
Reviewed 8th June 2016 by Jenni Elliot
All but one of the plugs blooming are blooming marvellously. Colour is wonderful & they're full of blooms. Can be a bit brittle but even when some parts of the plant broke off, more leaves & flowers appeared. Bought as part of purple pot collection & also extra plugs & would definitely buy again & recommend. They're fabulous & give the border a real shower of intense colour & the pots look superb too.
Fantastic front of border plants
Reviewed 3rd October 2015 by Patricia Minns
Grew this little plant from seed this spring and whilst I agree that the germination was poor, the two plants which were planted out in the front of the border have been fantastic all summer. Needing no dead-heading or attention apart from the very occasional drop of water in my thin and chalky soil they have bloomed non-stop and show no sign of stopping. Will definitely grow these next year. I also have loads of snails and they have not been troubled.

Didn't find it easy to germinate, and the few precious seedlings were irresistible to snails. But the sole survivor is an absolute star among the patio pots: will certainly have another go next year.
Reviewed 12th July 2014 by Gill
These are the most amazing bluey/purpley colour you've ever seen and are brilliantly short so they can populate the tricky area at the front of the border. Would recommend to anyone who is planning a blue border as they really will astound.
