Plant of the Week: Phlox paniculata “David”

All Phlox have a lovely spicy scent which perfumes the garden during the  summer months, this cultivar also has a long flowering period, resistance to mildew and is superb for cutting. It has large clear white flower-heads and dark green foliage , reaching 4 foot it rarely needs staking and grows easily in part shade or sun. Like all Phlox it appreciates a rich moist soil.
