Chock-full of oomph and charisma, Phlox are enduring warm weather beacons, appreciating moist well-drained soil, frequent deadheading and deep basal waterings, while periodic thinning to just 4 or 6 stalks ensures healthier paniculata cultivars.
A natural occurring hybrid between Phlox maculata and possibly Phlox glaberrima, this fabulous mildew-resistant Phlox is the happy outcome of a chance roadside sighting in Kemper, Mississippi by plantswoman Karen Partlow. Remaining unblemished all season, the long, slender glossy fresh green leaves clothe firm compact stems, bolstering droves of large rounded clusters with sweetly perfumed, crisp white flowers. Excellent for the front lines or where space is scarce, ‘Minnie Pearl’s virtues are plentiful: lengthy bloom time, short upright stance, slow spreading, pest-free habit and fantastic flowers that beguile the butterflies and hummingbirds and look fetching in a bouquet.
Size: 12" – 18" high x 2' 0" wide.
