I love this phlox. It's highly mildew resistant and blooms continuously from mid summer into autumn. The flowers have a pleasant fragrance that is not too strong or light. The plant in bloom reaches about four feet in height with large clusters of pale pink to white blossoms with a purplish-pink eye. It forms a nice clump fairly quickly and attracts hummingbird (sphinx) moths, as well as all sorts of bees.
