If you’re only going to choose one new Tall Garden Phlox this year, make it ‘Glamour Girl’.  You won’t be disappointed!  

This long-legged beauty stands tall, proudly showing off her large panicles of hot coral pink flowers held on dark purple stems.  Even the oldest flowers in her panicles are a beautiful shade of light coral pink. 

‘Glamour Girl’ maintains bright green, healthy looking foliage on strong stems all summer, putting on her flower show in mid through late summer.  She powers through hot, humid summers with ease, shaking off any sign of powdery mildew that looks her way.

Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Phlox paniculata is unequaled for showy blooms over a long period throughout the summer. Though they are some of the most popular perennials available, they do require some maintenance to sustain their health and vigor.

Tall Garden Phlox grows best in rich, moist soil in full sun. It will thrive with bi-monthly fertilizing and consistant moisture levels. Overhead watering should be avoided since some varieties of phlox are susceptible to powdery mildew. This can be avoided or diminished by providing ample air circulation around the plants and by thinning them out periodically. Deadheading will prolong bloom time and prevent self-seeding.
