Phlox paniulata 'Bright Eyes'

Plant details

Phlox are classic cottage garden plants that flower between July and October. Deadhead them regularly to extend the flowering season. Extra plants can be created by dividing clumps every three-four years. Good companion plants include different coloured cultivars, especially 'Mount Fuji' (white), 'Eva Cullum' (pink with a dark centre), 'Prince of Orange' (deep salmon) and 'Starfire' (cherry red). Beware mildew on well-drained soil in dry summers. To reduce the likelihood of an attack, thin congested clumps and water well and mulch in the spring. Phlox paniculata 'Bright Eyes' produces bright pink flowers, fading to white towards the tip of each petal.
