Forever Pink Phlox
Add color to your late spring garden with Forever Pink Phlox.
This phlox is hardy in zones 4 to 8 and blooms after creeping phlox and before the summer blooming garden phlox, adding needed color to the perennial garden.
Grow this phlox in full sun and moist well-drained soil. Once established, it is drought tolerant.
This long blooming phlox is covered with vibrant purplish-pink flowers for three weeks. A light shearing after the initial bloom fades will encourage sporadic blooming throughout the remainder of the season.
This low maintenance phlox is resistant to powdery mildew and does not need staking. Plants reach 16 inches when in bloom and spread to 18 inches wide.
During initial plant trials the deer and rabbits left Forever Pink Phlox alone, while browsing on the nearby garden phlox.
Use this spring bloomer in perennial borders and containers where its long bloom and neat habit can be enjoyed.
A bit more information: Though the deer tend to pass over Forever Pink Phlox for other plants you should always monitor this and other plants for animal damage. Deer, rabbits and other wildlife will eat just about anything when their populations are high and food is scarce. This perennial as well as many other landscape plants was introduced by Chicagoland Grows Plant Introduction Program.
