The large, Hydrangea-like flower clusters of Summer Phlox create a spectacular show in the summer border. Sweetly fragrant as well, the flowers waft their scent over quite a distance. This selection has white flowers with a contrasting pink eye, and boldly variegated leaves, splashed with green and creamy-white. All varieties of Summer Phlox are superb for cutting, and may even attract passing butterflies. Remove faded flowers to encourage a second bloom. Fairly resistant to powdery mildew. Water regularly during summer heat.
