Chock-full of oomph and charisma, Phlox are enduring warm weather beacons, appreciating moist well-drained soil, frequent deadheading and deep basal waterings. Periodic thinning to just four or six stalks ensures healthier paniculata cultivars.
Back in 1987, F. M. Mooberry of The Brandywine Conservancy spotted this outstanding, chance seedling and named it after her husband. A quintessential summertime border plant, ‘David’ is highly prized for his lustrous mildew-resistant greenery and huge, long-blooming fragrant flowers. Shapely triangular panicles illuminated in classic white stand some 6 to 9 in. tall, and nearly as wide, on erect stems with narrow, bristle-edged dark green leaves that are arranged in pairs.
Size: 3-1/2' – 4' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
