Description

I am crazy about the new breeding programme producing one after another of these incredibly long-flowering, sweet and delicate Phlox drummondiis, brilliant as pot fillers and cut flowers. First came ‘Crème Brûlée', then ‘Cherry Caramel’ and now, the perfectly pretty, ‘Blushing Bride’. They have delicate stems so need support and planting tightly to self-support, but then they just get on with it, right into late autumn.

Care Tips

Phlox is low-maintenance, just needs staking or growing up horizonally stretched jute netting. Pick or deadhead to prolong flowering. Water well especially over hot summer months.
