Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:
One of the most beautiful mid-summer flowers, Coral Crème Drop is adorned with brightly colored, deep salmon blooms. Each tiny flower (or floret) that makes up the blossom cone has a bright, fuchsia pink ring around the center – the center where hummingbirds and hummingbird moths come to drink their nectar. It’s as if nature put a bull’s eye right there for them to see the spot. Mix this phlox into your border or foundation plantings and accent it with blue and white flowering plants for a glorious color combination. This super disease resistant selection is mildew free in gardens all over the US and comes to us from breeding in The Netherlands.
