Plant details

This is a unique blend of annual phloxes. It combines yellows, pinks, apricots, mauves and pale orange in pretty bicolours, some with picotee edges, to form a delicate and fragrant tapestry, which will delight you in summer. 'Tapestry' is an all-rounder for borders and large tubs and it can also be grown for cut flowers. Sow the seed in heat, from February to April, harden off plants and plant out in late spring. It can also be sown indoors, in October, for a spring-flowering pot plant.
