Summary

Phlox paniculata ‘David’ brightens the garden with its large panicles of intensely fragrant, pure white blooms that last for several days in mid to late summer. It grows 30-48” tall and is a highly regarded cultivar for its medium-green, mildew-resistant foliage, making this phlox a perfect candidate for the perennial border or woodland garden edge. David fall phlox performs well in average to moist, well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Discovered by native plant enthusiast F.M. Mooberry at Brandywine River Museum near Chadds Ford, PA, Phlox paniculata ‘David’ is a good companion for Spigelia marilandica, Vernonia gigantea, Rudbeckia fulgida, and Coreopsis pubescens.
