The perfect companion for Norah Leigh, Hardy Tall Phlox Olympus boasts gorgeous contrasting blooms in bolder shades of mauve-pink to purple that look amazing in summer border gardens. The flowers' white centers pick up the varying shades of reddish-pink and white found on the striking variegated foliage, creating an elaborate display of color and flair. Like most tall phlox, Olympus is very fragrant, making it a wonderful addition to fresh-cut flower arrangements or mixed bouquets. Planted in groups, its scent is redolent throughout the entire area. Quite nice planted outside a window where the breezes can carry the fragrance indoors. PPAF
