Description

Height x Spread: 75cm x 60cm

 A member of the species of Phlox commonly known as 'Meadow Phlox',  'Alpha' has narrow linear, glossy green leaves covering upright stems which bear cylindrical clusters of fragrant lilac-pink blooms during early summer.

Deadheading will prolong flowering throughout the summer. Phlox maculata need a sunny or partially shady situation with a humus-rich soil. A winter mulch will help this Phlox thrive. Divide every three to four years in either autumn or spring.
