Named in loving memory of our Greenhouse Manager’s mother. Just like mom, always there for you, it continues blooming even into late September. Stunning pink fragrant blossoms - each with a heart of deeper pink.
Discovered in his garden, a sport of P. Red Riding Hood, our manager decided to name this lovely new variety, Marilyn Catherine. When most plants are on their summer siesta, Garden Phlox provide a much needed shot of color. Large blossoms in a range of colors, Garden Phlox are known as the ‘backbone’ of the perennial border.
Phlox paniculata provide unsurpassed flowering in summer, clear crisp colors and fragrant flowers in profusion. Good cut flower, a choice selection for the colder zones. We specifically carry disease-resistant Phlox varieties.
Prefers moist, humus-rich soil. Phlox can be divided every 3-5 years in spring or fall. In spring, just as new growth appears, dig up the plant and divide clump with a sharp knife or spade into at least 2 or 3 shoots and a portion of the root system. Plants divided in fall should be mulched with a 4-6” layer of straw or pine needles to prevent heaving. Remove mulch in early spring. Cut back by 1/2 in late spring/early summer to encourage more compact plants. Shear off spent blooms just above foliage. To help avoid the possibility of mildew; provide plants with good air circulation (in spring, snip out all but 4-6 stems in a mature clump), avoid drought-like conditions, site plants where they will get sufficient light of six hours or more each day. Should a spray program become necessary, products exist on the market for prevention and control. Removing mature blooms will prevent seeding, if not desired. Clean up spent foliage in spring.
