Description

Drift away on a cloud of sweet perfume that fills the air on warm summer days. Phlox 'Sweet Summer Fantasy' is gardener’s dream with sumptuous, cone-shaped clusters of fragrant blooms. Phlox paniculata varieties like this just can’t help but show off, flaunting an impressively long flowering time which usually lasts into autumn. This one in particular with bicolour blooms loves to be in the limelight. You won’t be the only one admiring these blooms—bees and butterflies love them too!

Thankfully slugs and snails find this phlox less appealing. Phlox paniculata 'Sweet Summer Fantasy' ('Ditopur'ᴾᴮᴿ) (Sweet Summer Series) is one fuss-free and undemanding customer, flourishing in sun or light shade and tolerating almost any soil, once established. Reaching a height of up to 1m, this variety sits perfectly in the middle of a sunny border, and will mingle happily with other perennials to create a nostalgic cottage-garden feel. Each plant sends up multiple stems that form a leafy clump in the border, getting bigger and better each year. That’s just as well, as you are certain to want to snip some stems for a vase indoors!
