Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:
A favorite color in the summer garden, Grape Lollipop adds a much-needed pop of deep, saturated purple to the palette. Each tiny flower (or floret) is accented by white brushstrokes – or landing marks – and a bright orange halo in the center, helping much needed pollinators find their way to the juicy nectar. Hummingbirds and hummingbird moths will frequent this plant – especially right before the sun goes down. As you finish your gardening chores, and sit down on the patio or porch with a cold beverage to relax, and watch the pollinators visit these phlox. You’ll be amazed at their abundance, speed and beauty. This super disease resistant selection comes to us from breeding in The Netherlands.
