Sparkling white giant flowering clusters. Phlox David is very fragrant with light green, mildew resistant foliage. Best white we've ever seen. As a staple for the perennial border it mixes well and continues to provide long summer color. P.P.A. Plant of the Year 2002.
Phlox paniculata provide unsurpassed flowering in summer, clear crisp colors and fragrant flowers in profusion. While a spray program to control mildew is often necessary, the rewards are worth it. Good cut flower, fragrant, best selection for the coldest areas.
Prefers moist, humus-rich soil. Phlox can be divided every 3 - 5 years in spring or fall. Self sows prolifically but colors may not grow true to parent plant. Cut back by 1/2 in late spring/early summer to encourage more compact plants. Shear off after bloom, just above foliage to encourage more blooms. Snip off any winter-damaged shoots in spring. To allow for good air circulation, snip out all but 4 - 6 stems in mature clump.
