Moonlight gardens and all-white feature beds come alive with scent when our white Tall Hardy Phlox is planted. The soft, pyramidal panicles grow 24-36" tall and are packed with supple florets of pure, icy white. They easily add a multisensory effect to cutting gardens, presentation beds and indoor arrangements or bouquets. We were really impressed with how big the 5-6" flower heads grew in the test gardens. And the butterflies and pollinators seemed to enjoy the flower show, as well. We suggest planting in groups to get the best results and for the greatest impact. Tall phlox flourishes from June to August, when little else is in full bloom.
