Coral colored flowers

Phlox paniculata Candy Store® Coral Crème Drop

The best mildew resistant phlox to date! This new series of hardy garden phlox will bring months of tantalizing color to your summer garden! Clusters of deliciously scented, coral colored flowers begin to bloom in early summer filling the garden with a sweet fragrance until fall.

One of the most beautiful mid-summer flowers, Coral Crème Drop is adorned with brightly colored, deep salmon blooms. Each tiny flower (or floret) cone has a bright, fuchsia pink ring around the center – the center where hummingbirds and hummingbird moths come to drink their nectar. It’s as if nature put a bull’s eye right there for them to see the spot. Mix this phlox into your border or foundation plantings and accent it with blue and white flowering plants for a glorious color combination. This super disease resistant selection is mildew free in gardens all over the US and comes to us from breeding in The Netherlands. - Mildew resistant! - Compact, well-branched varieties - Bright, fragrant flowers all summer long! - 4 Colors to choose from
