If it’s flowers and fragrance you’re after, then there’s plenty of that to be had with a good selection of Phlox varieties.

All from the ‘Sweet Summer’ series, you’ll get 'Candy' (pink), 'Fantasy' (white/lilac), 'Snow' (white), 'Dream' (soft pink) and 'Ocean' (mauve-blue). It’s a beautifully balanced colour combination to help you create a dreamy, flower-filled, sweetly-scented summer border. Also, if you like picking flowers for indoors, you’ll find that Phlox are good for that too!

Every garden should have at least one Phlox variety—they just have so much going for them. Large clusters of colourful blooms coupled with a heavenly fragrance goes a long way towards summer garden perfection.
