Phlox, Robert Poore Summer (Phlox paniculata 'Robert Poore')

11.95

This garden phlox has fragrant, richly colored purple-red flowers that bloom profusely in mid-summer. It is named after Mississippi landscape architect Robert Poore. It is the most resistant to powdery mildew, a problem with many other paniculata cultivars. It lures a variety of butterflies, such as swallowtails, Painted Ladies, Great Spangled Fritillaries, sulphurs and skippers. Deadhead to prevent self-seeding, as volunteers will revert to less attractive colors. Phlox paniculata thrives in organic, moist to average soil in full sun to light shade. Tolerant of drought once established. 

Height: 4-5 ft.

Light: sun, light shade

Zones: 4-8
