Phlox Starfire

Phlox Starfire

Brilliant cherry-red flower heads and purple-hued foliage makes Phlox Starfire a real standout in the midsummer to late fall garden. Also called "flame flowers," garden phlox is an easy-to-grow perennial and an eye-catching cut flower. Phlox Startfire grows 24-36" tall with up to 8" flower panicles and a brilliant, non-fading color. It's an excellent choice for perennial borders, corners and cutting gardens. The foliage is dense and compact. For the best garden performance, plant phlox in rich, well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Deer tend to avoid.
