Productinformation

Phlox Drummondii grandiflora Blushing Bride
Phlox drummondii ‘Blushing Bride’ is a relatively new pink and white annual phlox with a lovely lilac scent. Because this annual phlox grows a little taller, the flowers are also very suitable as cut flowers. The flowers of the Blushing Bride have soft white petals with a blush pink center. As the plants get older, the colors change to a slightly darker and more intense pink.
We do not only like this phlox only because of its color and scent. The plants are also easy to grow from seed and flower for a very long time. If you remove the spent flowers, this phlox Blushing bride will flower until autumn!

How to grow annual phlox Blushing Bride from seed?
Start seeds indoors or in the greenhouse from late February till April. Seeds need to be in the dark in order to germinate. Some additional warmth will speed up the germination process. Plant out the seedlings as the weather has warmed up a bit, usually around April. You can direct sow seeds but we have not tried this ourselves yet. You can start the seeds in the 77 cells and transplant them to larger pots later, or plant them out in the garden if the weather allows. Use good quality compost when starting the seeds in seed trays. If you have applied new compost to your garden in the autumn additional fertilizer is not required based on our experience. Some support once stems get longer is recommended. Plants also look fantastic in pots, combined with taller plants in the back. Or in hanging baskets!

Phlox is a fantastic and long-lasting cut flower. We have had the phlox Drummondii last almost 2 weeks in the vase!
