Mildew resistant and growing to around 3 feet tall, 'Eva Cullum' has pink flowers with a red eye. Blooms in early to mid-summer but will keep flowering if spent flowers are cut off. A great cut flower, very fragrant, and butterflies love it.

I used to grow this Phlox, but lost it and now am trying to get it to grow again. It's one of my favorites! It's always beautiful, year after year!

I always noticed the hummingbirds would go to this one, more often than the other tall Phlox I had blooming at the time. Maybe it's because of the lighter pink with the darker rose color of the flower, I just know that in my hummingbird attracting garden, this variety is a must!
