Perennial or border phlox, Phlox paniculata, is a tall-growing phlox native to the USA, typically with pink flowers. However there are many garden-worthy cultivars available in a range of heights and with different coloured flowers, making them a popular stalwart of the traditional border.

Perennial phlox is renowned for its colourful flowers with a sweet, honey-like fragrance. It’s an ideal choice for the middle of a border, and thrives in rich, moist soil in light shade.

Phlox paniculata 'Blue Paradise' grows to a height of 120cm, and bears clusters of violet-blue, fragrant flowers, each with a darker blue eye. Leaves are dark green and stems are red, making this a great choice for a mixed, herbaceous border.
