Phlox x 'Crystal'

Crystal Garden Phlox: Patent PPAF

Categories: Herbaceous Perennial

This new Hybrid Phlox blooms earlier than the average Tall Garden Phlox (Phlox paniculata), starting about 2-3 weeks earlier than the typical Phlox. ‘Fashionably Early Crystal’ is a taller variety of Hybrid Phlox that will work best for the middle to back of the border. In addition to being early blooming, it boasts a long season of color. Pure white flowers with a faint light purple eye appear from early summer well into midsummer with some rebloom in fall
