Phlox Cherry Caramel
Phlox 'Cherry Caramel'
Hands down our favorite variety from our 2016 trials, this annual flowering phlox is easy to grow, fast to flower and produces abundant, highly fragrant flowers – the scent resembles lilac combined with melon. Clusters of dainty caramel-colored blooms with dark cherry centers combine to create an antique appearance, reminiscent of the Victorian era. This is a must-have for floral arrangements and also a great addition to a garden border.
