    Phlox have been country garden favourites for years because of their delicious scent and attraction to butterflies and bees. This variety bears fabulous trusses of fragrant, hydrangea-like violet flowers with broad petals and deep purple eyes. They appear from July to August on tall stems with narrow, toothed, mid-green leaves. This pretty perennial will tolerate full sun or partial shade, but like all phlox, does not like soil that dries out in summer. Try it as part of a 'cool' planting scheme based on blue shades.

  • Garden care: Support with bamboo canes, brushwood or ring stakes before the flowers appear. Phlox are greedy plants, so apply a mulch 5-7cm (2-3in) deep, of well-rotted garden compost or manure in early spring. Shear off the spent flower stems to prevent re-seeding. If the leaves show signs of powdery mildew, cut down to the ground and dispose of the affected foliage, but do not compost it. Clear away the debris around the plant to reduce the chances of reinfection. Lift and divide clumps in autumn and spring.

Very impressed with speed of arrival and the way it was packaged. On opening it the plant was a decent size and in good condition.
It had two flowers on it a lovely deep colour. They didn't smell gt but I'm sure that ws because it will be no reflection on the true perfume when it blooms next year and the flowers are fresh,

This arrived very quickly and was extremely well packed and in perfect condition. I had a big pot already for it, so planted it at once and within a few days it has now has a couple of flowering buds together with a flower on another stem which is blossoming already! Thank you so much.
