Phlox 'Minnie Pearl'
PLEASE NOTE: This time of the year all of our phlox have been trimmed back. Plants shipped now will be well established with lots of roots but will have little to no foliage. Plants will produce new leaves very fast and you can still expect flower this year!
Phlox 'Minnie Pearl'. This tall garden phlox was discovered growing along the roadside in Kemper, Mississippi by plantswoman Karen Partlow. It appears to be a naturally occurring hybrid of P. maculata x P. glaberrima, though it has a nice upright habit like the paniculatas. Clusters of large, pure white flowers completely cover the glossy, green foliage from early to late summer. In warmer zones, this plant reportedly begins blooming in April, long before the paniculatas. The relatively short plants spread slowly to form a 2ft wide clump in about 3 years.
