Brand new medium pink, Phlox paniculata hybrid, from Novalis, an extremely good mold resistant phlox with huge, extremely long, dark green, beautiful foliage, and a huge and wide main cola of medium pink phlox flower blooms. It's very heat tolerant, as many of my other pink phlox got fried in the intense heat this year, but this variety is healthy and untouched by the sun. i highly recommend any one who loves hot medium pink colored phlox to get this new hardy variety. mike.
