Giant Hardy Phlox Franz Schubert

Giant Hardy Phlox Franz Schubert

One of the best hybrid phlox on the market today! Franz Schubert is a new phlox variety that bears large panicles of fragrant, soft lilac-blue florets with deep, dark eyes. They bloom in abundance from June to September—an amazing three months! This Giant Hardy Phlox won't fade in the sunlight either. The beautiful, pastel hues remain rich and luxuriant throughout their extra-long blooming season. Franz Schubert is an ideal choice for adding lush color and a delightful perfume to perennial borders, cutting gardens, corner beds and pots. Flower heads grow to 5-6" tall atop 2-3' stems. For best results, plant in well-drained soil in full sun or light shade.
