I planted it this year and it turned all black. What happened?

a very nice pink variety, i had to replace one this year though as it burnt out from the intense heat hear this year, so it's not the hardiest pink variety phlox, as none of my other pink or lavender varieties, such as, laura, starfire or bubblegum burnt out, but a very pretty pink variety one none the less..mike.

Planted in morning sun afternoon shade average soil. It flowers repeatedly year after year with no additional care. Never experienced problems. 18-24' dependent on rain. Blooms June through fall. Excellent plant.

A beautiful and favorite Phlox in my garden.

I must be lucky with this one--grows in heavy moist clay soil in partial shade and comes back fuller every year with zero maintenance. Zone 7.

Positive SalmonMe On Oct 23, 2004, SalmonMe from Springboro, OH (Zone 6a) wrote:

What a beautiful cultivar. Reportedly resistant to powdery mildew, but wise to still give it plenty of space for air circulation. Also, water at base of plant to avoid unnecessarily wetting leaves, blooms. Deadhead regularly for a long blooming season. Seed have significant variation and may overtake original. Weed them out. Pinching early in summer can help reduce need for staking.

Such a beautiful cultivar, it needs full sun and plenty of room to strut its stuff.

Seed does not come true, but using it as a parent with other varieties, some really unique offspring have resulted.
