Phlox paniculata – Peppermint Twist Garden Phlox
Peppermint Twist Phlox is a fun, short variety that entertains us with huge clusters loaded with flowers with pink and white striped petals. An exceptionally long bloomer, you can count on tons of fragrant cut flowers to perfume your home. Hummingbirds and butterflies adore it.
Use Peppermint Twist in cutting, fragrant, and pollinator gardens. It works fantastic in containers on its own, or mixed with other plants.
Plant in full sun to light shade in soil that has been amended with compost or organic matter. Add a starter fertilizer when planting. Plants benefit from a good fertilizer. Keep well watered especially when plants are setting up buds, blooming, and during dry spells.
