I love seeing that even so called old-fashioned plants such as perennial phlox still attract breeders’ attention and they invest time and energy in crossbreeding and selecting new, hardier, healthier, and more beautiful varieties. EARLY START™ is a great series from the Netherlands comprising of compact, almost dwarf hybrid summer phlox (panicle type). They bloom earlier and make compact tufts with shorter stems, and absolutely healthy foliage.

EARLY® MAGENTA is another of the great EARLY START™ summer phlox. From about mid June appear large panicles of numerous, bright magenta purple flowers which open continuously for almost 3 months. The first panicle has two flushes of flowers and once the second flush has gone, remove the panicle to encourage formation of new lateral branches with new flower buds to continue blooming until August. The flowers are fragrant and attract butterflies. Stems are dark green with red hues just like new foliage that matures to dark green and is completely disease resistant.

Growing phlox is easy. It likes almost any garden soil, fertile or poor, but with enough nutrients the flowering will be heavier and the plant will not suffer common phlox diseases. They are long-lived plants that will stay in your garden until you dig them out. EARLY START™ phlox prefer partial shade or filtered sun but will bloom in full sun, too, unless you let them dry out. Hardy to about -34°C (USDA zone 4) and suitable for outdoor pots.
