Phlox drummondii 'Palona Rose with Eye'
Annual Phlox, Drummond Phlox, Texas Pride
|Delightful plants ranging from creeping, shade-lovers to tall, sun-loving, easy-to-cut, flower border mainstays. All have dense clusters of blooms. Deadhead and thin to discourage mildew. Almost all are American natives -- the most well-known is Tall Phlox (Phlox paniculata). Many others are gaining popularity as gardeners use more natives. Available in containers. Check native plant catalogs for unusual varieties.
The Palona hybrids bloom earlier than other varieties, with many flowers on compact, bushy, globe-shaped plants. They fit nicely in rock gardens and window boxes.
