Phlox paniculata 'Natural Feelings'

Plant details

A mid-border cottage garden plant flowering from July to October. It has domed clusters of double, mauve-purple, scented flowers on erect stems. Dead-head plants regularly to extend the flowering season. Extra plants can be created by dividing clumps every 3-4 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). The latter two have been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit. 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.
