Description

Plant Phlox 'Palmyra' in your garden and you can look forward to more than just a big display of beautiful blooms. Most interestingly, this one variety produces flowers of different colour variations—marvel at a mixture white with pink stripes, fuchsia pink with white margins and clusters of crimson. Not only that, but in true Phlox fashion it will bring in the bees and butterflies as well as filling the air with fragrance. Those big conical flowerheads sit on strong stems up to around 1m tall—a few groups or a drift of 'Palmyra' phloxes in a border is an incredible sight but they also make an easy and magnificent bouquet. 

Phlox is a classic addition to a cottage-style garden and this new beauty brings an interesting modern twist. Phlox 'Palmyra' enjoys a position in a sunny border which has free draining soil. As it’s fairly tall, it would look best either at the back of a narrow border or in the middle of a wide border, planted in groups so that the flowers of varying shades can form a cumulous of pink clouds.

The sassy new Phlox 'Palmyra' flaunts a wardrobe of petal patterns that'll make your garden the talk of the town! Strutting its stuff from mid summer, this botanical fashionista dazzles with a runway-worthy medley of white catwalk stripes on pink, bold pink solids, and a touch of reddish-pink glam. The blooms don't just look good; they throw a fragrant garden party that lasts for months, inviting butterflies to flutter by and gossip over the latest nectar.

As the belle of the border ball, Phlox 'Palmyra' turns heads and layers your landscape with a depth of colour that's as much a feast for the eyes as it is for our winged friends. But don't be fooled by its chic appearance; this is no garden diva. Phlox paniculata 'Palmyra' is as easygoing as they come—think of it as the perennial friend who enjoys sticking around, without any of the fuss.

Free-flowering and generous to a fault, Phlox 'Palmyra' is the gift that keeps on giving, offering up a bouquet of blooms to jazz up the great outdoors and your favourite vase indoors. Effortlessly stylish, perennially in vogue, and just a pinch of fabulous. Your garden soirées will never be the same!

Useful information

    • Soak the Phlox 'Palmyra' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting

    • Plant your bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed. Some varieties are a length of root which should be planted lengthways and shallowly (1-2cm deep).

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
