Phlox paniculata ‘David’

Looking like a snowy white dome over dark green foliage, phlox paniculata ‘David’ is a fragrant perennial that blooms from mid-July to September. This variety is also known as perennial phlox and fall phlox. With regular deadheading, this two to four foot tall plant will continue to bloom into fall. Choose the location well because phlox self seeds, giving your perennial flower garden a stunning backdrop. The butterflies and hummingbirds that come to phlox are a photo opportunity waiting to happen.

Phlox paniculata ‘David’ likes full sun to part shade. This plant can spread up to two feet wide, so plant at least two feet apart. Planting can take place in early fall or spring.  You can prune the plant down to the ground when it stops blooming. Every three years in the spring, divide the clump to add more plants to your garden or to pot or to give away.
