Terrific mildew resistance sets this one miles above all others!

For nonstop lilac-blue color on a trouble-free sun-loving plant, you just can't equal Blue Paradise! This hardy garden Phlox is ready to take off in your garden, with lush foliage that grows right down to the ground, great branching for a bushier look, and tons of small red-eyed blooms!

These trusses reach 10 to 12 inches long and are quite plump, sticking up all over this compact plant. Very floriferous, Blue Paradise has far better mildew resistance than other blue Phloxes, making it the hands-down choice for your garden, particularly if you live in a climate where summers are rainy or humid.

Blue Paradise is terrific in the vase as well as the garden or container. The flowers combine well with Phlox, as well as with Roses and Peonies. A reliable, hardworking garden performer, Blue Paradise will reward you with armfuls of lovely blooms for years to come!

Hardy Phlox is the backbone of the summer garden, providing continuous bloom from midsummer till the colder temperatures of fall. Nothing is easier or more rewarding to grow for the sunny border, and the cut flowers are delightful in the vase. Select a spot in full sun or light shade with well-drained, moisture-retentive soil, deeply-worked (for good root development) and enriched with organics. Phlox are heavy feeders; you will want to keep the soil rich. Avoid overhead watering to prevent mildew--their biggest enemy--and keep the plants deadheaded to encourage even heavier blooming. For better-branched plants, try pinching out the tips of young plants when they are about 9 inches high. Zones 4-8.
