Description

This is just as dreamy as can be! Reminiscent of the softest pink sunrise shades, Phlox 'Sweet Summer Dream' features blowsy, domed clusters of coral-coloured petals, dusted with rosy pink blush and embellished with a bright magenta eye. A generous panoply of sweetly-scented flowers bursts into action from mid to late summer, making an eye-catching statement at the same time as attracting a steady stream of pollinators to the garden.

Phlox paniculata 'Sweet Summer Dream' ('Ditomdre'ᴾᴮᴿ) (Sweet Summer Series) is a herbaceous perennial that grows to form an open, upright clump with multiple flowerheads that are borne on distinctive dark red stems, bursting with lush green lance-shaped leaves. It makes an excellent mid-height filler for borders, bringing cottage-garden charm to summer displays. The unforgettable scent and superb longevity of the flowers make Phlox a florist’s favourite too, so flower arranging devotees should certainly find space for a row or two of these in their cutting patch. Grow in a well-drained soil, in a full sun or light shade position, and deadhead regularly for continuous flower production.
