I just bought 2 of these giants this year and I had never seen them before and they are even taller than most of the phlox that iv had for four or five years!! their really giants!!! the evening they glow lavender light eminating from the inside out and when you cut them after a day they turn the most beautiful sky blue in a vase of water..I recommend anyone who loves phloxs and bright tall perenials to get these" 'David's lavender' phlox!!! amazing reward for perennial gardeners and without the couple years wait for tall busy phlox growth!!

From SELECT SEEDS catalog: What can be better than summer afternoons in the garden with clouds of sweet scented phlox mingled with lustrous lilies? A sport of white 'David' and yes, just as mildew resistant! Rich soil. Thin stems for good air circulation and deadhead to avoid self-sowing.

Perennial; 4 ft tall
Color: Lavender
Full sun to partial shade
Soil: Rich, well-drained
Hardiness Zones: 4,5,6,7,8
