Phlox Beauty (Phlox Drummondii Splendid Mix) 40 seeds (#1227)

Charming, versatile and vibrant with a great variety of colours and shades. Superb planted in bedding displays, mixed borders, patio containers and rock gardens.
Phlox drummondii is an annual phlox that is native to grasslands and open woods in central and eastern Texas. It has escaped gardens and naturalized along roads, fields and waste areas in many parts of the U. S., particularly in the southeastern states.
Fragrant, trumpet-shaped, five-lobed, mix color flowers with short narrow tubes appear in clusters at the stem ends in a spring bloom typically extending from April/May to early July. Plants decline significantly as the heat of summer sets in, but may revive in fall. In cool summer climates, plants will continue to bloom throughout summer.
Best grown in loose, acidic, humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Part afternoon shade is appreciated in hot summer climates. Prefers even moisture. Tolerates some soil dryness. Plants may be grown from seed started indoors about 6-8 weeks prior to the last spring frost date. Space plants 20 cm apart. Pinch main stems of young plants to stimulate branching. Deadhead spent flowers promptly to the extent practicable to extend bloom. Propagate by seed. Plants will easily reseed in the garden in optimum conditions.
