    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. This is a classic cottage garden plant, that is attractive to butterflies and bees. This cultivar has a good resistance to mildew, but even so it is best to plant it in soil that remains reliably moist in summer.

  • Garden care: Support with bamboo canes, brushwood or ring stakes before the flowers appear. Phlox are greedy plants, so apply a mulch 5-7cm (2-3in) deep, of well-rotted garden compost or manure in early spring. Shear off the spent flower stems to prevent re-seeding. If the leaves show signs of powdery mildew, cut down to the ground and dispose of the affected foliage, but do not compost it. Clear away the debris around the plant to reduce the chances of reinfection. Lift and divide clumps in autumn and spring.

      Comments about Phlox paniculata 'Bright Eyes':

      It took quite a while to get going, but once it started flowering it lasted for ages. Good depth of colour to
      brighten a border.
