This is the first Summer phlox I've ever grown and it hasn't disappointed me. It smells heavenly and I've never seen any sign of mildew on the leaves. Last year it was a small plant, but this year it produced lots of new shoots. After it's finished blooming, I cut it back and then it blooms again, but with fewer blooms. The flower clusters last a fairly long time and it doesn't seem bothered by high temperatures or blazing sun.
