Gardeners' Notes:

San Antonio, TX
An extremely hardy perennial having a more open growth habit than 'John Fanick.' It is 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. It bears large clusters of magenta pink blossoms. The foliage is medium green (a lighter green than the 'John Fanick'). Best grown in direct sun, it tolerates heat and drought, plus it is powdery mildew resistent. Due to its outstanding qualities and ability to perform magnificently in our Texas heat, it has been named by the Texas A&M CEMAP program as a Texas SuperStar.

The sweet fragrance of the blooms on this phlox freshen my patio area, as well as other areas of my yard. The magenta pink flowers can be counted on to provide outstanding color from summer to early fall and they attract hummingbirds and butterflies. They can be seen for quite a distance. Victoria Phlox have proven to be able to perform well in the 108 degree temperatures we experienced here this summer. Although they did wilt some, they perked back up without supplemental water when the temperatures cooled.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Tipp City, Ohio
Claremore, Oklahoma
Middleton, Tennessee

San Antonio, Texas
