Phlox x 'Lavender Ice'

Lavender Ice Garden Phlox: Patent PPAF

Categories: Herbaceous Perennial

This new Hybrid Phlox blooms earlier than the typical Tall Garden Phlox (Phlox paniculata), starting about 2-3 weeks earlier than the typical Phlox. ‘Fashionably Early Lavender Ice’ is a taller variety of Hybrid Phlox that will work best for the middle to back of the border with its refined, perfect looking habit. In addition to being early blooming, it boasts a long season of color.
