  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The foliage of this pretty cultivar will often take on red tints throughout summer, creating a colourful pairing with the pale pink flowers, which have darker, red eyes. A classic cottage garden plant that has shown a good resistance to mildew.

  • Garden care: Support with bamboo canes, brushwood or ring stakes before the flowers appear. Phlox are greedy plants, so apply a mulch 5-7cm (2-3 in) deep of well-rotted garden compost or manure in early spring. Shear off the spent flowers to prevent reseeding. Cut down to the ground in autumn and lift and divide large clumps in autumn or spring.

    This is going to join in with two others which were my latest purchase from Crocus. They are all very healthy looking and a good size. I want to make a row in a border by the side of the drive so anyone can benefit from the fragrance when coming to my house. A superb plant for scent and long flowering.
