Phlox 'Opening Act Pink-a-Dot' PPAF CPBRAF

Opening Act Series

Common Name: Hybrid Phlox

Joining the popular Opening Act series is a new color pattern that is sure to please you early in the season. Tall Garden Phlox are a mainstay in the midsummer sun garden, and this new hybrid Phlox will bloom even earlier, opening the Phlox season in early June here in Michigan. It boasts a long season of color in addition to being early blooming. Near white flowers with a dark pink, central star pattern appear from early summer well into midsummer. The overall look of the flowers is light pink. If you sheer the spent flowers back, you can expect some rebloom into early fall. The dark green, glossy foliage is mildew and disease resistant, an improvement on older varieties of Phlox that don't hold up as well in the heat and humidity of summer. With a stoloniferous growth habit, this Phlox will spread slowly over the years.
