Small florets. Pink color not as popular as other color; Very unusual to lose phlox over winter.

Comments

Year 1

I hope they will be taller next year; We had an extremely hot dry summer. Should overwinter well; No flowers up to September 30 (Watsonville, CA). Phlox is not our best crop. Plants tend to look hard, not lush, will wait till next year for market appreciation; Very large stems. Good growth; Not as prolific as the other two phlox varieties in the trial. – Plants in California did not flower in the first year.

Year 2

I grow other Phlox and have had good luck with them, but I really didn’t like any of these as cuts. They were all very short with large flower heads that didn’t work well for me; Not as mildew resistant as David, but better than most; Phlox ‘Red Eyes’ was so much better, this one pales by comparison; This cultivar grew better in 1999 than in 1998.
