Phlox Forever Pink

This beautiful selection is covered in vibrant purplish-pink flowers for three weeks in June, then will repeat-bloom well into October, truly living up to it's name.

The peak bloom of attractive purplish-pink flowers in June comes at a time when the spring moss phlox are finished blooming and the summer-flowering phlox have yet to start blooming. This plant will repeat-bloom well into October, truly living up to its name. The selection appears to be sterile, which explains why it stays in bloom for so long. There is no energy wasted on seed production, and no bothersome seedlings to contend with in the garden. Plants are uniformly dense and clump-forming,

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
