Phlox 'Blue Paradise' is a beautiful blue-lilac phlox with incredible scent, which attracts lots of butterflies and bees to its nectar-rich flowers. I love this variety which flowers right through July, August and into September.

The phlox in the oast garden at Perch Hill fill the whole place with that extraordinary rich and delicious scent. I love their flowers, I love their colours and I love their perfume. This spring, I'm planting more.

Plant arrived in good condition. Potted it up watered and feed it. It did really well then I planted it in garden. I have not had any flowers. Disappointed but I'm sure it will be fine next year. A few year back I purchased David White Phlox. This is beautiful.

Didn't grow very well, and then it went down with a fungus. I've managed to keep it alive, and I'm hoping for better results next year.

I haven't had much success with this Phlox in my garden so far. It is fairly small and not too happy. I think it may be either the soil or its position, so I am waiting till next year to really judge its potential. It arrived quite early and because June was fairly cool and wet, I suspect it didn't get the best of starts in the garden.

Again the first plants received were very sickly and replacements were sent. Although they have flowered unfortunately they are covered with powdery mildew and despite several treatments with a fungus fighter spray have still not recovered.

Had to contact them over poor quality of one plant. A replacement was quickly sent. SRs plant are relatively expensive but up to now I thought it was worth it for the quality.however some salvias were distinctly under sized compared to those I bought locally at less than half the price. Not sure she’s keeping an eye on her supply chain .

Tempted by them in the sale, so they were late to get into the garden. Lovely colour, but mildew was a real problem.
