Description

A mix of coffee, raspberry and cream in this truly beautiful annual phlox, which lasts well over a week in the vase.

It has spindly stems, so support as it grows. We grow this up through garlic chives as a sturdy frame.

Care Tips

Deadhead to prolong flowering. This is an ideal plant for a container. Keep the soil moist.
