Phlox paniculata sweet summer

Phlox paniculata sweet summer

“Phlox paniculata ‘Sweet Summer’ is a charming perennial that enriches British gardens with its delicate beauty and sweet fragrance. Growing to a height of 60-90cm, it forms bushy clumps of lance-shaped, deep green leaves crowned with clusters of fragrant, star-shaped flowers in shades of pink, lavender, or white. This variety thrives in sunny or partially shaded locations with moist, well-drained soil, making it ideal for borders, cottage gardens, or mixed perennial beds.

‘Sweet Summer’ blooms profusely from midsummer to early autumn, providing a vital source of nectar for bees and other pollinators during this period. To prolong flowering and maintain a tidy appearance, deadhead spent blooms regularly throughout the season. Pruning should be done in early spring to remove any dead or damaged stems and encourage healthy growth. Feeding with a balanced fertilizer in spring supports vigorous foliage and robust flowering.

Beyond its ornamental value, Phlox paniculata ‘Sweet Summer’ plays a crucial role in supporting local biodiversity by attracting bees and pollinators. Its fragrant blooms and long-lasting flowers make it a valuable addition to wildlife-friendly gardens across the UK, contributing to pollination efforts and enhancing the ecological balance of garden landscapes.”
