Phlox ‘Creme Brulee’

Petite, star-shaped flowers borne in sprays are lined with varying intensities of streaking and veining. Some blooms have a dark eye while others are marbled and speckled. Plants have a branching habit and produce abundant flowers with a sweet candy fragrance from mid summer through autumn. This is a wonderful choice for bouquets and wedding work.
