Phlox Peacock Cherry Red

 

The Peacock Series is bred for compact size, disease resistance, and heat tolerance. Cheerful cherry pink blooms make it glow in the garden border. Good old-fashioned fragrance remains in this improved cultivar. When tidying your garden, cut off only the top third of the spent bloom panicle, and new smaller blossoms will burst from the side buds. Mature Size: 18 - 24" tall, 12 - 18" wide.

 

Plant in moist fertile soil. Full sun / partial shade, Hardy.
