    Comments about Phlox paniculata 'Bright Eyes':

    I have put this phlox in a border that gets full sunshine for more than half of the day. It looks great and I am very pleased with it. Flowers lasted several weeks, though if there is a lot of heavy rain, that can damage the flowers.

      Comments about Crocus Phlox paniculata 'Bright Eyes':

      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.
