Phlox stolonifera ‘Mary Belle Frey’

5 Photos


Summary

Phlox stolonifera ‘Mary Belle Frey’ was not particularly vigorous during the first year of our trial. However, during the second year, the plants greatly expanded, creating a large uniformly dense mat of foliage that lasted for the rest of the trial. Unfortunately, ‘Mary Belle Frey’ suffered in the overall rating due to defoliation cause by powdery mildew.
