Phlox Cotton Candy
Soft pink flowers with white brushstroke accents form into large flower clusters on Cotton Candy Phlox. Each flower has bright white markings and an orange halo around the center of the flower, to guide the pollinators to the pot of nectar waiting for them. Hummingbirds and hummingbird moths will delight and visit these beauties daily, as their sweet candy-like fragrance fills the summer air. Cotton Candy mixes well with purple, darker pinks and even yellows in mixed plantings and foundations, and will bloom from mid to late summer. This disease resistant selection comes to us from breeding in the Netherlands.
Plant in full sun to light shade in soil that has been amended with organic matter. Keep well watered, especially when plants are blooming and setting up buds. For best results apply an all-purpose fertilizer following manufacturer’s instructions.
