Phlox clouds of perfume plants have not done well at all, very spindly with little new growth, they didn't flower, the other plants on this order are great.

I thought the Phlox 'Clouds of Perfume' was very pretty so I ordered the plant for my mum's birthday. There was no problems at all with post or packaging. The plant was labelled 'Clouds of Perfume' but it grew into totally different plant. My mum has taken photo of this different plant. It is a bit disappointing.

This was a lovely plant, it blossomed through the spring and is still very much in place.

The plant must have died over winter, no sign of it.

Since planting they flowered within a few weeks, flowering continuously for around 3 months, cut back since and they look very happy
